Shining a light on the world of male infertility, and how clinics bolster and protect men's notions of masculinity
Liberty Walther Barnes is a Research Associate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Cambridge.
"[A] compassionate and substantive analysis of male infertility. Her ethnographic work is two-pronged: first, it reveals the history of male infertility and the responses of modern medicine; second, it studies the ways in which this oft-hidden precinct of medicine works overtime to bolster the masculinity of its patients [...] Barnes weaves a bounty of analytic threads into a compelling ethnography whose interviews with infertile men and their (mostly male) doctors make the story come richly alive in this overdue study." - Publishers Weekly
