This bold reappraisal of science and society explores the different ways that women's reproduction is seen in American culture. "Spectacular. There is no better study of the power of metaphor in modern medicine." Thomas W. Laqueur, author of Making Sex "One of the greatest strengths of this fascinating book is Martin's careful analysis of how medical language about women's bodies reveals cultural assumptions about women and their life's purpose. . . . Highly recommended." Judith Walzer Leavitt, Bulletin of the History of Medicine
