The Body: Social Process and Cultural Theory by Mike Featherstone

The Body: Social Process and Cultural Theory by Mike Featherstone

This challenging volume reasserts the centrality of the body within social
theory as a means to understanding the complex interrelations between nature,
culture and society. At a theoretical level, the volume explores the origins
of a social theory of the body in sources ranging from the work of Nietzsche
to contemporary feminist theory.

The importance of a theoretical understanding of the body to social and
cultural analysis of contemporary societies is demonstrated through specific
case studies. These range from the expression of the emotions, romantic love,
dietary practice, consumer culture, fitness and beauty, to media images of
women and sexuality.
