'Lisa Ann Richey carefully and eloquently elucidates the complex web of relationships between international population policies, the Tanzanian state, and the main target of population programs - poor women seeking reproductive health and family services at the local level. Theoretically sophisticated but grounded in solid clinic-level field work, this pathbreaking book should trigger challenges and changes to current neo-liberal models of development, women's health, and HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention in Africa.'


- Betsy Hartmann, Director, Population and Development Program, Hampshire College, UK and author of Reproductive Rights and Wrongs
