Beyond the Breast-Bottle Controversy
by Penny Van Esterik

This book by anthropologist Van Esterik is one of the first to examine the relationships between breastfeeding and the empowerment of women, gender and feminism. The themes she explored in 1989 have stood the test of time and her ideas remain relevant to current efforts to protect, promote and support breastfeeding globally. This book needs to be at the top of the reading list of those interested in advancing breastfeeding research, advocacy and policy and those interested in advancing the lives of mothers.
