Weaving a family : untangling race and adoption by Barbara Katz Rothman( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barbara Katz Rothman, a noted sociologist who has explored motherhood in four previous books and has more recently explored the social implications of the human genome project, now turns her eye toward race and family. Weaving together the sociological, the historical, and the personal, Barbara Katz Rothman looks at the contemporary American family through the lens of race, race through the lens of adoption, and all--race, family, and adoption--within the context of the changing meanings of motherhood. Drawing on her own experience as the white mother of a black child, on historical research on white people raising black children from slavery to contemporary times, and pulling together work on race, adoption, and consumption, she offers us new insights for understanding the way that race and family are shaped in America today. This book is compelling reading, not only for those interested in family and society, but for anyone grappling with the myriad issues around raising a child of a different race--an estimated seven million American families in 2005.

A bun in the oven : how the food and birth movements resist industrialization by Barbara Katz Rothman( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rothman traces the food and the birth movements through three major phases over the course of the 20th century in the United States: from the early 20th century era of scientific management; through to the consumerism of Post World War II with its {u2018}turn to the French{u2019} in making things gracious; to the late 20th century counter-culture midwives and counter-cuisine cooks. The book explores the tension throughout all of these eras between the industrial demands of mass-management and profit-making, and the social movements - composed largely of women coming together from very different feminist sensibilities - which are working to expose the harmful consequences of industrialization, and make birth and food both meaningful and healthy."--From publisher description

Facing the polar forces of an epidemic of Cesarean sections and epidurals and home-like labor rooms, American birth is in transition.

Sociology of diagnosis by P. J McGann( )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the only book to provide a comprehensive introduction to the sociology of diagnosis through original theoretical and empirical work by established and emerging scholars and, as such, it is poised to become a touchstone volume. Sixteen articles are presented across four sections. 'Power and the Politics of Diagnosis' explores diagnosis as a process of definition that includes: labeling dynamics between 'diagnoser' and diagnosed; boundary struggles between diverse constituents - both among medical practitioners and between medical authorities and others (such as lay persons, legal, religious, and/or governmental agents); and, the symbolic and material interests behind contested diagnoses. 'Identity, Experience, and Action' analyzes the impact of diagnosis on individual identity and illness experience, diagnosis as a basis for collective identity, and social action in relation to diagnoses. 'Diagnosis and Social Control' considers the role of diagnosis in norm enforcement and the production of moral boundaries and social standards, and diagnosis in relation to medicalization. 'Nosological Dynamics' explores diagnoses as socio-politico entities embedded in social relations
