MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a remarkable text: imaginatively conceived, carefully and extensively researched, and by turns bold and passionate. ...[It] deserves a wide readership - in cultural and medical anthropology, history of medicine, demography, European history, and women's studies."
--- David Horn, Ohio State University--David Horn, Ohio State Unviersity
"Measuring Mamma's Milk is a highly informative, thoughtful, and gracefully written book. It makes an important contribution to scholarship on 20th century Italy, medical anthropology, and women's studies by showing how fascism shaped reproduction in enduring ways that have negative consequences for women and children."
--American Anthropologist--Carole M. Counihan "American Anthropologist "
