Weaving a family : untangling race and adoption by Barbara Katz Rothman ( Book )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 808 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.

Bioethical issues, sociological perspectives by Barbara Katz Rothman ( )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume deals with the topic of health inequalities and health disparities. The volume is divided into five sections. The first section includes an introductory look at the issue of health care inequalities and disparities and also an introduction to the volume. One of the backdrops to this topic in the United States was The National Healthcare Disparities Report and its focus on the ability of Americans to access health care and variation in the quality of care. Disparities related to socioeconomic status were included, as were disparities linked to race and ethnicity and the report also tried to explore the relationship between race/ethnicity and socioeconomic position, as explained in more detail in the first article in the book. The second article discusses a newer overall approach to issues related to health inequalities and health disparities. The remaining four sections of the book address more specific topics relating to inequalities and disparities. The second section examines racial and ethnic inequalities and disparities. The third section includes articles that address the issue from the perspective of research about health care providers and health care facilities. The last two sections of the book focus on consumers and topics of health care disparities, with Section 4 focused on issues related to substance abuse, mental health and related concerns. Section 5 includes articles looking at issues of vulnerable women, women with breast cancer and people with colorectal cancer. "Inequalities and Disparities in Health Care and Health" is important reading for medical sociologists and people working in other social science disciplines studying health-related issues. The volume also provides vital information for health services researchers, policy analysts and public health researchers. It is a great resource for health services researchers, policy analysts and public health researchers. It offers an in-depth look at bioethics, focusing on health inequalities and disparities

Sociology of diagnosis by P. J McGann ( )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 687 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
Laboring on : birth in transition in the United States by Wendy Simonds ( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Facing the polar forces of an epidemic of cesarean sections and epidurals and home-like labor rooms, American birth is in transition. Caught between the most extreme medicalization - best seen in a cesarean section rate of nearly 30 percent - and a rhetoric of women's "choices" and "the natural," women and their midwives, doulas, obstetricians, and nurses labor on. "Laboring On" offers the voices of all of these practitioners, all women trying to help women, as they struggle with this increasingly split vision of birth. Updating Barbara Katz Rothman's now-classic "In Labor", the first feminist sociological analysis of birth in the United States, "Laboring On" gives a comprehensive picture of the ever-changing American birth practices and often conflicting visions of birth practitioners. The authors deftly weave compelling accounts of birth work, by midwives, doulas, obstetricians, and nurses, into the larger sociohistorical context of health care practices and activism, and offer provocative arguments about the current state of affairs and the future of birth in America
