Consuming Passions
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Twenty-two experts share their extensive knowledge on women's preoccupation with body size. They consider the continuum of eating behaviours ranging from dieting and exercise for weight control to anorexia and bulimia, as well as exploring recent research in such areas as failure of dieting to control weight, and the increasingly disputed links traditionally made between weight and health.
