In the thirty-five years since the first +test-tube baby,½ in-vitro fertilization and other methods of reproductive assistance have become a common aspect of family life and medicine in affluent nations and, increasingly, throughout the world. How do persons seeking treatment, donors, and medical experts make use of these reproductive technologies? How in crossing borders between nations do they manage to evade legal and bioethical regulations? And how do they make sense of these new modes of making kinship against the backdrop of diverse world-views and social settings?

In bringing together a wide array of ethnographic studies this volume offers both a cur-rent snapshot of the complexity and diversity of local or national IVF-cultures and of emerging transnational forms of mobility, competition, inequality and collaboration. Reproductive technologies as global form refer to the simultaneity of replicating standards and creating differences, of displacements and reappropriations, raising a plethora of provocative questions for the future.
