Margaret Marsh (au); Wanda Ronner (au). In this important book, prof. Margaret Marsh, Ph.D., & obstetrician-gynecologist Wanda Ronner, M.D., delve into the origins of the many medical & cultural beliefs surrounding infertility. Drawing on a wide variety of sources -- including intimate diaries & letters, patient records, memoirs, medical literature, & popular magazines -- they investigate the social & scientific dimensions of infertility over the past 300 years. They disclose the voices of those most affected by the physiological & cultural condition of infertility, & restore to the historical record the anguish & hopes of women who experienced infertility. They also demonstrate the profound impact of politics as well as culture on the development of medical practice. B&W photos.
