Synopsis: The birth of life is not only a biological phenomenon resulting from sexual intercourse. It is also regulated by a sociocultural order which each society maintains. It is important to consider gender dogma, among others, for this theme because both men and women are involved at the time of childbirth. Moreover, it is necessary to focus on the cosmology of each society because giving birth is often controlled under magico-religious rituals and taboos. The articles of this book discuss birth customs and related spheres from these points of view.
