The Media and Body Image

If Looks Could Kill

by Wykes, Maggie; Gunter, Barrie;

Description
Although it has become popular to blame the media for extolling unrealistic female body images, little academic work has addressed the issue. This book, drawing together literature from sociology, gender studies and psychology, offers a broad discussion of the topic in the context of socio-cultural change, gender politics, and self-identity.
