The Anthropology of the Fetus : Biology, Culture, and Society, Hardback Book

The Anthropology of the Fetus : Biology, Culture, and Society Hardback

Edited by Sallie Han, Tracy K. Betsinger, Amy B. Scott

Part of the Fertility, Reproduction and Sexuality: Social and Cultural Perspectives series



As a biological, cultural, and social entity, the human fetus is a multifaceted subject which calls for equally diverse perspectives to fully understand.

Anthropology of the Fetus seeks to achieve this by bringing together specialists in biological anthropology, archaeology, and cultural anthropology.

Contributors draw on research in prehistoric, historic, and contemporary sites in Europe, Asia, North Africa, and North America to explore the biological and cultural phenomenon of the fetus, raising methodological and theoretical concerns with the ultimate goal of developing a holistic anthropology of the fetus.
