Are men less satisfied with their bodies than they used to be? At what age do children become dissatisfied with their bodies? How might age, sexuality, ethnicity and social class impact on body image? Bringing together perspectives from psychology, sociology, womens studies and media studies, Sarah Grogan assesses what we know about the social construction of body image at the end of the twentieth century. Most previous work on body image concentrates on women. with the male body becoming more visible in popular culture, researchers in psychology and sociology have recently become more interested in mens body image. Body Image presents original data from interviews with men, women and children to complement existing research, and provides a comprehensive investigation of cultural influences on body image. Body Image will be of interest to students of psychology, sociology, womens studies, mens studies, media studies, and anyone with an interest in body image.Grogan, Sarah is the author of 'Body Image', published 2007 under ISBN 9780415358217 and ISBN 0415358213.
