Understanding the complex and multifaceted issue of human reproduction has been, and remains, of great interest both to academics and practitioners. This series includes studies by specialists in the field of social, cultural, medical, and biological anthropology, medical demography, psychology, and development studies. Current debates and issues of global relevance on the changing dynamics of fertility, human reproduction and sexuality are addressed.


Three of the books published in the series have received nominations for the CAR Prize (Committee for the Anthropology of Reproduction) at the American Association of Anthropologists (AAA).


The CAR Prize 2010 and 2012 were won, respectively, by Volume 12: Reconceiving the Second Sex: Men, Masculinity and Reproduction, edited by Marcia C. Inhorn, Tine Tjørnhøj-Thomsen, Helene Goldberg and Maruska la Cour Mosegaard, and Volume 18: Assisting Reproduction, Testing Genes, edited by Daphna Birenbaum-Carmeli and Marica C. Inhorn.
