The Body in Everyday Life Summary

The Body in Everyday Life by Sarah Nettleton

We all have a body, but how does it impact upon our day to day life? This book sets out to explore how ordinary women, men and children talk about their bodies, through four central themes:-
* physical and emotional bodies
* illness and disability
* gender
* ageing.
A coherent collection of such empirical research, The Body in Everyday Life provides an accessible introduction to the sociology of the body, a field previously dominated by theoretical or philosophical accounts.

The Body in Everyday Life Reviews

'A fascinating and wide-ranging collection that is bound to engage the reader with new ideas and understandings.' - Laura Potts, Health Matters Issue 36 Spring 1999

'A significant contribution to research relating to the embodied self as experienced in daily life and real world situations. It combines a wide range of research approaches, settings and topics and yet maintains a specific focus throughout' - Steve Robertson, Medical Sociology News vol 26 June 2000
