"Reproductive States" brings together works by experts from around the world, illuminating the reproductive politics of some of the most populous countries in the world: Brazil, China, Egypt, Germany, India, Iran, Japan, and Nigeria, as well as USSR/Russia, and the United States. Each chapter analyzes specific characteristics of national population policies after World War II. The demographic policies of these countries are often categorized differently in terms of the level of economic development (i.e. "developing," "developed" nations; or the "First," "Second," or "Third" worlds), and ideological, political, or religious orientations (capitalist, socialist, communist, Catholic, or Muslim). At the same time the book goes beyond the boundaries of these categories and demonstrates the common denominator of all reproductive policies--the perception of women's bodies as a political resource.

At the seminar Dr. Nakachi, coeditor, will present some of the key findings from this book project. She will also discuss the role of socialism in the contexts of Soviet/Russian and Chinese family and demographic policies, a subject that is often overlooked in the discussion of postwar development of World population control.
