Birthing Models on the Human Rights Frontier
This book addresses the politics of global health and social justice issues around birth, focusing on dynamic communities that have chosen to speak truth to power by reforming dysfunctional health care systems or creating new ones outside the box.
The chapters present models of childbirth at extreme ends of a spectrum - from conflict zones and disaster areas of Afghanistan, Israel and Palestine, and Indonesia, to models in high risk tertiary care settings in China, Canada, Australia and Turkey. Debunking notions about best care, the volume illustrates how human rights in health care are on a collision course with global capitalism and offers a number of specific solutions to an ever-increasing problem.
It will be a valuable resource for scholars and students in anthropology, sociology, health and midwifery, as well as for practitioners, policy makers and organisations focused on birth or on social activism in any arena.
