Kurzbeschreibung

1. This book upends common assumptions about high fertility in West Africa, examining issues around mortality and infertility, and telling the history of childbirth sympathetically from the vantage point of individual Sahelien women and men.

2. This book is emblematic of IUP's goals to challenge stereotypes and feature research that puts the experience of everyday people front and center.

3. Barbara Cooper is a returning author and Herskovits Prize winner. She is a talented and experienced scholar who has been working and researching in Islamic, Hausa-speaking Niger for over 30 years.
