About This Item

New York:: Harper & Row,, (1981). Very near fine in a like dustjacket. (sunning to spine of dj). Hardcover. The author's first book - "A deeply committed and beautifully written analysis of our society's increasing demand that women be thin. It offers a careful and thought-provoking discussion of the reasons men have encouraged this obsession and women have embraced it. It is a book about women's efforts to become thin rather than to accept the natural dimensions of their bodies -" A book which is arguably even more relevant now than when it was written. Notes. 206 pp.

About Bookfever.com, IOBA

This is our 28th year in business. We started selling books in the CompuServe Book Collecting forum in 1993, quite a while before there was any commercial Internet. In 1998 we relocated our main business from Sacramento to the Sierra foothills of Amador County, about 35 miles east of downtown Sacramento and opened a store (called Books Upstairs) at the Antiques Upstairs Mall, 5 Main Street, Jackson, CA. (open every day from 10-5) The emphasis there is on Western Americana, children's books, mysteries, science fiction, and inexpensive reading copies of classics and vintage juvenile series. Please let us know if there are any other books you are looking for; we enjoy helping collectors complete their collection and we can often suggest books for reading! .
