Body Law and the Body of Law
Lieferbar innerhalb von 2-3 Tagen
BeschreibungThe book examines how laws on sterilization, birth control and abortion were created, by focusing on the act of legislation; how the law was driven by scientific and social norms during the first and closing decades of the 20th century in the USA (especially in the state of Indiana) and Norway.
The author develops the notion of "body law” for reproductive policies and uses sociological theories to untie the various strands of social.
