Críticas:


"Yes, I do like the current approach of the book: How ideas about women's bodies are socially constructed; how these ideas can be used to control women's bodies; and how women as agents resist these constructions. I think the themes of sexuality, appearance and behaviour are useful in conveying the politics of women's bodies. ... The length of the book is suitable. Each chapter is a good length for a first-year class. ... I found some of the new additions, such fatness and compulsive heterosexuality, most useful, since they added context and augmented feminist issues. ... No major weaknesses, but I would suggest a little more updates on appearance, behaviour and the idea of self-policing. ... I am likely to adopt a new edition."
- Pauline Phipps, University of Windsor


"This book is very unique, and therefore fills an important gap that the other books [I use in my course] don't cover. One of the strengths is the equal weight given to empowerment and agency alongside inequality and control. This makes for great class discussions on why women treat their bodies the way they do. I would like to see more technology and science as it relates to the body, rather than just medicine. ... This book addresses the really important issue of 'the body' which still isn't addressed well in the feminist and social science literature, and it offers such cutting-edge and compelling case studies and topics! It is an excellent resource and discussion of the body and contemporary politics; both theoretical and empirical; interdisciplinary and cutting edge; readable and engaging. I would be very interested in adopting a new edition."
- Winifred Poster, Washington University


"I like the length of the chapters/sections, and many of the major works on the body are covered. However, a course on the body would need to address men's bodies as well as women's, and the text's emphasis on white women in the U.S. is a big limitation. ... There should be more chapters on rac

Reseña del editor:

Since 1998, The Politics of Women's Bodies: Sexuality, Appearance, and Behavior has served as the premiere text in the area of women and the body. This revised and updated fourth edition brings together recent (and a few classic) critical writings in this important field. The selections reflect three themes: how ideas about women's bodies in the United States are socially constructed, how these social constructions can be used to control women's lives, and how women attempt to resist these forces. Exceptionally well-written and edited to be accessible and pedagogically friendly, the articles in this collection cover a wide range of topics while paying attention to class, ethnicity, disability, body size, and sexual orientation.
