The final chapter extrapolates from the Bedouin case study to draw broader conclusions about how reproductive inequalities are structured locally and across transnational boundaries. By taking up demographic questions of class, kinship, gender, culture, and biology in Bedouin communities peripheral to the modern nation-state, the study offers new ways of thinking about reproduction and reproductive justice. The chapter sums up the book's position on the global demographic divide as a capitalist class-divide. At the same time, however, the chapter reaffirms that the measure and meaning of demographic difference does not always conform to conjectures of class.
