Summary

"Interest in the sociological study of the body has increased dramatically in the 1990s. This book builds on this work by bringing together theory and research which examines the social and cultural processes involved in the construction of gendered bodies and sexual practices. Contributors explore these issues in a variety of settings ranging from the workplace and leisure industry to the social regulation of medicine."--BOOK JACKET.
