Interdisciplinary text which focuses on theories and principles of the human reproductive function but also looks at the ways in which reproductive health is affected in humans and other species.
As the title implies, Pollard's book about reproduction in all its guises places the subject in the context of social, human, and environmental concerns. The text, though thoroughly based on current biologic, genetic, physiologic, and scientific knowledge, is remarkably readable...The section on the history of artificial control of fertility is particularly interesting and provides the longitudinal perspective so frequently neglected. Highly recommended... Choice "...Many readers will enthusiastically welcome a written guide to the modern minefield of issues that involve reproductive biology...provides a substantial base for future explorations into the field." Armand Lione, Reproductive Toxicology "Much of the Guide would be useful as a reference text for teachers of prenatal growth and development...Various chapters would also be useful for people interested in Darwinian medicine..." Lynnette E. Leidy, American Journal of Human Biology "...thorough, informative and well-written." Religiouws Studies Review "Readers interested in advanced textbook in biology will enjoy this volume. Descriptions of the biology of reproduction, including anatomy, physiology, and medicine are thorough, informative and well-written." Judy E. Stern, Religious Studies Review
