9780198715818: The Smile Revolution: In Eighteenth Century Paris
Críticas:

an important contribution to the history of medicine as well as the history of the emotions...It is immensely readable ( Reviews in History, Dr Jennifer Wallis)

highly readable, intelligent, unpretentious and even mischievous book... Jones's ingenious and puckish book, poised between high culture and pop psychology, is both entertaining and informative ( TLS, Patrice Higonnet)

Politics, literature, dentistry and art are wrapped up in a brilliant piece of scholarship. ( Michael Prodger, Book of the Year 2014, New Statesman)

fascinating exploration ( Mary Beard, The Spectator)

Fascinating book ( The Good Book Guide)

It is, in short, an inspiring work by a master of the field. ( Anna Jenkin, French History)

A combination of impressive learning and entertaining wit ( Harriet Devine, Shiny New Books)

In just 180 pages, Jones manages to be brilliant about painting, French literature and history, the sociology of emotional expression, and the hucksterish early history of the dental profession. ( The Slate, Books of the Year)

The most original approach to history in years ... [Colin Jones] had written one of the most absorbing and unusual history books imaginable ( Michael Prodger, Sunday Times)

immensely readable ( The Connexion)

The subject of Jones's book may seem recondite, but it is a fascinating mouthful. In mixing dental minutiae, sweeping social history and vivid detail to show why the smile was no laughing matter but something both mutable and meaningful he has written one of the most absorbing and unusual history books imaginable. ( Michael Prodger, The Sunday Times)

compelling Cheshire cat of a book ( Kathryn Hughes, Guardian)

ingenious and puckish book ( Patrice Higonnet, Times Literary Supplement)

a marvellous, engaging and constantly enlightening study ( John Brewer, Literary Review)

The Smile Revolution is an education and an entertainment ... Colin Jones drills into his subject with wit, clarity and a fine theatrical flourish. ( James Hamilton, The Times)

The intriguing untold story of how we learned to smile. ( The Bookseller)

You will never look at an eighteenth-century portrait in the same way after you read these pages so filled with verve, wit, and insight. Colin Jones accomplishes the extraordinary feat of changing our view of the ordinary by showing us how teeth, smiles and laughing all gained profound significance. ( Lynn Hunt, author of Inventing Human Rights.)

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. You could be forgiven for thinking that the smile has no history; it has always been the same. However, just as different cultures in our own day have different rules about smiling, so did different societies in the past. In fact, amazing as it might seem, it was only in late eighteenth century France that western civilization discovered the art of the smile. In the Old Regime of Teeth which prevailed in western Europe until then, smiling was quite literally frowned upon. Individuals were fatalistic about tooth loss, and their open mouths would often have been visually repulsive. Rules of conduct dating back to Antiquity disapproved of the opening of the mouth to express feelings in most social situations. Open and unrestrained smiling was associated with the impolite lower orders. In late eighteenth-century Paris, however, these age-old conventions changed, reflecting broader transformations in the way people expressed their feelings. This allowed the emergence of the modern smile par excellence: the open-mouthed smile which, while highlighting physical beauty and expressing individual identity, revealed white teeth. It was a transformation linked to changing patterns of politeness, new ideals of sensibility, shifts in styles of self-presentation - and, not least, the emergence of scientific dentistry. These changes seemed to usher in a revolution, a revolution in smiling. Yet if the French revolutionaries initially went about their business with a smile on their faces, the Reign of Terror soon wiped it off. Only in the twentieth century would the white-tooth smile re-emerge as an accepted model of self-presentation. In this entertaining, absorbing, and highly original work of cultural history, Colin Jones ranges from the history of art, literature, and culture to the history of science, medicine, and dentistry, to tell a unique and untold story about a facial expression at the heart of western civilization.
