From the reviews: "This cross-cultural perspective of infant feeding practices investigates how mothers in a variety of cultures and sub-cultures make infant feeding decisions. ... The book's strength is its acknowledgement and coverage of the multiple interlocking factors that determine women's infant-feeding decisions, including the effects of class, geographical region and education, which affect the cultural background. ... This book will encourage reflection for clinicians, health policy-makers, sociologists, cultural historians, and mothers themselves." (Virginia Thorley, International Lactation consultant Association, November, 2011)
