Full text not available from this repository.
Since Louise Brown was born in 1978, "artificial fertilisation" has become widely practiced. The far-reaching social implications of these procedures are an understudied phenomenon in Switzerland and Russia. Public acceptance of in vitro fertilisation is increasing, but to have a child with this technology, and without sex, is still often imbued with secrecy and taboos. The book sheds light on the cultural and social production of gendered bodies, persons and families in Russia, Switzerland and Germany in the context of reproductive technologies, with a special focus on normalisation practices
