MEDIA REVIEWS
"Oudshoorn ... fits a crucial piece into the puzzle of the related histories of reproductive medicine and the cultural construction of gender ... thorough research ... Excellent illustrations and notes."
-M. L. Meldrum, UCLA
"This is the book we have been waiting for! We' are cultural critics who always suspected the uncertainties and negotiations behind scientific definitions of sex. We' are also feminists looking for a clear guide to the transformations of that abstract scientific power into the material forces of technology and medicine. Oudshoorn's book is that clear guide for historians, scientists, and all who wonder where our world of cyborg medicine originated."
-Diana Long, Women's Studies Program, University of Southern Maine
..."Nelly Oudshoorn presents a fascinating social history of early twentieth-century sex hormone research... provides a careful, detailed account of the cultural-material means of knowledge production that led to the making of the hormonal body, and its construction as female."
-"American Anthropologist Nelly Oudshoorn...provides a fascinating archaeology of the development of sex hormones and the reconceptualizing of the body as "hormonal."
