Social Aspects of Obesity

Gordon and Breach Publishers, 1995 - 314 pagina's
1 Reviewen
This collection of essays examines obesity not as an "objective" medical or psychological problem, but as a "subjective" social and cultural phenomenon. The contributors take a cross-cultural perspective, examining both the negative casting of obesity in developed countries and the traditional view of obesity as a positive characteristic in subsistence societies which is threatened by the dominance of Western culture.
