The Human Body in History and Culture

Fay Bound Alberti

  • The cultural story of the human body - from earliest times to the twenty-first century
  • Reveals just how modern the 'modern body' really is
  • Demolishes the idea of the body as an unchanging constant in a changing world
  • Shows how the way we move, feel, breathe, and engage with the world has differed radically over time - and between cultures
  • Takes the body apart to put it back anew, telling the cultural history of our key organs and systems from the inside out, from blood to guts, brains to sex organs
