Description

The Naked Woman builds on Desmond Morris' unrivalled experience as an observer of the human animal. In this, his latest book, he turns his attention and skill to the female form, taking the reader on a guided tour 'from head to toe'. Highlighting the evolutionary functions of various physiological traits, Morris' study explores the various forms of enhancement and constraint that human societies have developed in the quest for the perfect female form. All this is delivered in his trademark style, communicating what is often complex detail in direct, clear and focused language.

Author Biography

Desmond Morris was born in Wiltshire in 1928. After gaining a degree in zoology from Birmingham University, he obtained his D. Phil. from the University of Oxford. He became curator of mammals at London Zoo in 1959, a post he held for eight years. He was already the author of some fifty scientific papers and seven books before completing The Naked Ape in 1967, which was to sell over 10 million copies throughout the world and be translated into almost every known language. Desmond Morris has made many television programmes and films on human and animal behaviour, his friendly and accessible approach making him popular with both adults and children, and he is now one of the best-known presenters of natural history programmes. He is also an accomplished artist.
