Interesting text with chapters on: Space and Place: Habitus and Social Control. The Bounded body and Psychoanalysis.
Useful text and very well organised, a great introduction for undergraduate level.
I have adopted this text as recommended reading for my students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Theoretical ideas are accessible and carefully presented - a great addition to the literature in this area.
This is a very useful introductory text that will help students understand a range of theoretical approaches to the body. It is compact and clearly written. I would have liked it to flag up more directly which theorists were being addressed in each chapter - names and approaches are embedded in introductory sections, whereas more explicit chapter titles and sub-headings indicating topics would be very useful for readers, especially students.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
