Summary
"Sociology of the Body: A Reader brings together forty-two essays exploring the multitude of ways in which human bodies shape and are shaped by society. Revised to reflect the current state of the field, this second edition now incorporates an overarching intersectional approach to conceptualizing the body...both in relation to social processes, such as medicalization and reproduction, and social relationships, such as the construction of difference. The volume has therefore been carefully updated and re-organized not only to illuminate how bodies are used, shaped, presented, understood, and managed in society, but also to show how complex interactions of gender, sexuality, nationhood, ability and other social categories work together in the creation of inequality. This second edition also enhances theoretical and historical foundations of the book, helping students to better comprehend historical continuities and discontinuities of the social treatment and understanding of the body. Detailed, thought-provoking, and altogether current, this collection remains an essential introduction to the theories, issues, and perspectives informing a sociological understanding of the body today."..
