Eric Blyth is Professor of Social Work at the University of Huddersfield, UK, having worked for 12 years in social work practice and management. He has published widely on assisted conception, edited the Journal of Fertility Counselling and provided consultation for radio and television. His interest in the subject originated from direct experience of childlessness, infertility treatment and adoption. Ruth Landau worked for over twenty years in social work practice and management, including eight years as General Director of the Israeli Family Planning Association. She has organized national conferences and lectured in national and international forums on assisted conception.Review:
This is a collection of articles descriptive of third party assisted conception practices and regulations in a variety of countries. At the outset it must be said that for a book that deals with a rather esoteric topic, one that appears to be distant from the average reader, it is well written and holds the interest even of those who may not be familiar with that area of endeavour... It is an interesting text to be perused. The authors, scholarly professionals themselves, demonstrate an understanding not only of infertility and third party assisted conception, but also of the religious and cultural contexts in which these practices arise. Author: European Journal of Social Work
Anyone concerned with the artificial creation of families, including adoption, should study this volume and take note of what happens when relatively unregulated processes, dominated by money, medical technology and the needs of adults, reign supreme. Author: Adoption and Fostering
Compact as it is, this book contains a wealth of fascinating research into the way in which assisted conception is regarded at social, legal and ethical levels in each of thirteen countries across the world, from places as diverse as Argentina and Finland, Singapore and Poland. The book presents a wealth of facts in a most digestible format. It fascinates as much as it informs. Author: British Journal of Social Work
Given the government's recent decision to allow infertile couples one course of IVF on the NHS more people will have access to third party assisted conceptions, this is a timely book, writes Kathryn Evans. It may answer some of the myriad questions raised by those unfamiliar with the subject. The introduction provides a readable potted history of assisted conceptions in each country despite international knowledge of the different techniques. Author: Community Care
