Conceiving kinship : procreation, family and assisted conception in South Europe.

Bonaccorso, M. (2007) 'Conceiving kinship : procreation, family and assisted conception in South Europe.', Oxford: Berghahn. Fertility, reproduction and sexuality., 9


Focusing on Southern Europe, this compelling study adds a new perspective to the currently hotly debated issues of kinship, gender and modern medical technologies. It challenges established ideas of cultural continuities and discontinuities within the European context and offers fresh insights into longstanding questions regarding gender and kin relatedness. The study is further enhanced by the analysis of the wider contexts of assisted conception: the media, political debates and the clinics where treatment takes place.
