9781841133010: Regulating Reproduction: Law, Technology and Autonomy

This new book provides a clear and accessible analysis of the various ways in which human reproduction is regulated. A comprehensive exposition of the law relating to birth control, abortion, pregnancy, childbirth, surrogacy and assisted conception is accompanied by an exploration of some of the complex ethical dilemmas that emerge when one of the most intimate areas of human life is subjected to regulatory control. Throughout the book, two principal themes recur. First, particular emphasis is placed upon the special difficulties that arise in regulating new technological intervention in all aspects of the reproductive process. Second, the concept of reproductive autonomy is both interrogated and defended. This book offers a readable and engaging account of the complex relationships between law, technology and reproduction. It will be useful for lecturers and students taking medical law or ethics courses. It should also be of interest to anyone with a more general interest in women's bodies and the law, or with the profound regulatory consequences of new technologies.

Review:

.welcomed as a valuable and essential addition to a very contentious topic. The processing, presentation and analysis of data and the development and arrangement of the content of the book are indicative of a thorough investigation and grasp of the topic, as well as a scientific dissemination of voluminous research material. Although the book will be essential reading for lecturers, students, practitioners of medical law and health care professionals, it will also be an asset to any bookshelf. P A Carsten, University of Pretoria Stellenbosch Law Review October 2001 This will be a very valuable book for the wealth of information it contains and the ease of acces to it that Jackson produces in her clear and concise writing style. The narrative is well-informed and up-to-date. The author has produced a very interesting, comprehensive and accessible account of the law's involvement in reproductive choice and I believe that it is a valuable addition to the literature in this area. Professor Sheila McLean, Glasgow University Journal of Social Welfare and Family Law October 2001 Emily Jacksons keenly awaited autonomy-based account of the regulation of contemporary reproductive practices was always likely to be a signal contribution to an emerging debate not always graced with careful or detailed research and argument. Sufficient of her earlier essays, however, presaged a rich and detailed analysis of the relationship between law, technology and reproduction that was likely to be scholarly and stimulating, argumentative and authoritative. Her book now published does not disappoint. Emily Jacksons richly researched, deftly written and elegantly argued thesis is a model which many scholars might be pleased to imitate although few will find it possible to emulate. Derek Morgan Medical Law Review October 2001 I found the book to be well-written and that it developed many thought-provoking and interesting arguments. The author is to be congratulated in that she has obviously undertaken a great depth of research it is certainly of great value as a work of further reference, or as a basic text for post-graduate students. The price of the book (16.99 in paperback) offers excellent value for students of slender means On the whole the book can be recommended: it offers good value for money, and raises some thought-provoking issues and questions. Lynne Foxcroft, University of Huddersfield The Law Teacher October 2001 'Regulating Reproduction' is clearly a valuable addition to a growing literature. It is an accessible, well researched, and engaging work. The interdisciplinary approach is expertly carried off with law, ethics, and policy coming together in the best tradition of socio-legal scholarship. [] Each ot these features will make the text of interest and value to both academics and students. Michael Thomson, Keele University Journal of Law and Society October 2001 Regulating Reproduction' is a useful, informative and thought-provoking book for anyone interested in the field of contemporary human reproduction and the law. Emily Jackson is both engaging and engaged, making her writing style highly accessible. 'Regulating Reproduction' is something that should be on the bookshelf of every medical or family lawyer, and probably on that of anyone interested in the role of gender within law.
