Changes in breastfeeding practices are affecting the health and survival of millions of Third World Children and the fertlity of their mothers.

?. . . Feeding Infants in Four Societies describes the efforts of an interdisciplinary, international, and interagency team of investigators who focused attention on four cities in the developing world, Bangkok, Bogata, Nairobi, and Semarang, in an effort to delineate the major factors underlying mothers' decisions to breast- or bottle-feed their infants. . . . this multiauthored book is well written and broadly informative. It is recommended for anyone interested in infant feeding, and for all who plan to conduct similar research.?-American Anthropologist
