'œLitoff briefly reviews the history of American midwifery in the 20th century as an introduction to the carefully selected primary source material originally published in 1910. Litoff identifies in this source material the origins of the ongoing debate about the value of midwife management as opposed to medical management of normal labor and delivery. This book complements the existing body of literature on the history of American midwifery; the primary sources included are not easily accessible and are relevant to the issues.... The book is well indexed and carefully referenced. The bibliographic material included is excellent. Recommended for college, university, and public libraries.'' ChoiceLitoff, Judy B. is the author of 'American Midwife Debate A Sourcebook on Its Modern Origins' with ISBN 9780313241918 and ISBN 0313241910.
