This book can really describe the difference between birth and childrearing practices in different cultures

This is not another doctor-bashing book, but a positive work with insights from many points of view, in the best anthropological tradition. -Medical Anthropology Quarterly, Vol. 10, No. 1, March 1996.

Birth in Four Cultures: A Crosscultural Investigation of Childbirth in Yucatan, Holland, Sweden, and the United States is an anthropological study of childbirth by Brigitte Jordan published in 1978. Throughout the book Jordan explores the birth practices of four different cultures: the Yucatan, Holland, Sweden, and the United States. In chapter four, she explains in detail why she decided to focus her study on childbirth: "I never chose to study birth. In some sense, birth chose m.

When this book first appeared in 1978 it was a small volume that carried great weight in the medical anthropological profession, and for applied anthropologists as well.

While the process of childbirth is, in some sense, everywhere the same, it is also everywhere different in that each culture has produced a birthing system that is strikingly dissimilar from the others. Based on her fieldwork in the United States, Sweden, Holland, and Yucatan, Jordan develops a framework for the discussion and investigation of different birthing systems. Illustrated with useful examples and lively anecdotes from Jordan's own fieldwork, the Fourth Edition of this innovative comparative ethnography brings the reader to a deeper understanding of childbirth as a culturally grounded, biosocially mediated, and interactionally achieved event.

The information was interesting but very hard to get through. This book was a compilation of some of the driest research notes I've ever read.

This book was an eye-opener. I wish there were a follow-up in this day, some twentyish years later, but I hear the author has no plans to revisit it and studies business/office environments these days. Looking forward to someone taking this subject up again and doing a sequel!

We used this book in our University to understand the differences in birthing practices around the world, and how one system could benefit from the other. It was amazing to read Brigette's first-hand experience with these cultures. It was very informative, and I feel anyone reading could benefit from it.

This, I think, should be the first book for those studying childbirth across cultures or even for lay persons. A great book that opens your eyes and makes you see something that should be a normal everyday occurance in a new light.

This is a formal cross-cultural study on birthing practices across the globe. The author writes in an academic style, but the information is fascinating and vital in understanding how cultural/social frameworks surrounding birth, play a huge part in the practice and experiences of women giving life. Though written several decades ago, the medicalization of labor in America has continued along it's dehumanizing path. Still relevant and worth the read!

This book can really describe the difference between birth and childrearing practices in different cultures. Great for anyone looking to understand how much of birth is culturally driven!

I am not sure what I was expecting...but this wasn't it. I don't know. Too clinical maybe, I just didn't really enjoy it. I am sure it will speak to many people.
