Adrienne Rich's influential and landmark investigation concerns both the experience and the institution of motherhood. The experience is her own—as a woman, a poet, a feminist, and a mother—but it is an experience determined by the institution, imposed on all women everywhere. She draws on personal materials, history, research, and literature to create a document of universal importance.

The intersection of motherhood and creative life is explored in these writings on mothering that turn the spotlight from the child to the mother herself. Here, in memoirs, testimonials, diaries, essays, and fiction, mothers describe first-hand the changes brought to their lives by pregnancy, childbirth, and mothering. Many of the writers articulate difficult and socially unsanctioned maternal anger and ambivalence. In Mother Reader, motherhood is scrutinized for all its painful and illuminating subtleties, and addressed with unconventional wisdom and candor. What emerges is a sense of a community of writers speaking to and about each other out of a common experience, and a compilation of extraordinary literature never before assembled in a single volume.

The collection draws on psychological, historical, sociological, literary, and cultural approaches to inquiry. It includes methodology and theory from a wide range of interdisciplinary perspectives: qualitative, quantitative, corporeal, legal, religious, fictional, mythological, dramatic and action research, and feminist research and practice. The book would be of interest to the many scholars who teach and carry out research on motherhood and on the family, as well in the more general fields of women's studies and cultural studies.

Feminist motherhood is a surprisingly unexplored subject. In fact, feminism and motherhood have been often thought of as incompatible. Profound, provocative, and innovative, Feminist Art and the Maternal is the first work to critically examine the dilemmas and promises of representing feminist motherhood in contemporary art and visual culture. Andrea Liss skillfully incorporates theory with passionate personal reflections on the maternal, and in doing so she advances a fresh and necessary perspective on both feminism and art.

Offering new perspectives on motherhood, distinguished contributors from a variety of fields focus on the importance of seeing the mother as a subject, a person in her own right, by looking at the complex issue of how motherhood is represented. Contributors seek to understand the impact of culturally constructed images of motherhood in art, film, literature, and the social and behavioral sciences; they dignify the craft of motherhood, viewing maternal work as an experience grounded in social and political realities; and they probe conscious and unconscious maternal experience. From their several perspectives, contributors view the maternal subject as one who can give voice to her own experience and both appropriate and resist representations of motherhood.

A pioneer of modern motherhood studies, Andrea O'Reilly explores motherhood's current representation and practice, considering developments that were unimaginable decades ago: the Internet, interracial surrogacy, raising transchildren, male mothering, intensive mothering, queer parenting, the applications of new biotechnologies, and mothering in the post-9/11 era. Her work pulls together a range of disciplines and themes in motherhood studies. She confronts the effects of globalization, HIV/AIDS, welfare reform, politicians as mothers, third wave feminism, and the evolving motherhood movement, and she incorporates Chicana, African-American, Canadian, Muslim, queer, low-income, trans, and lesbian perspectives.
