Shilling, Chris

The body and social theory Shilling, Chris - 3rd ed. - Los Angeles Sage Publications 2012 - xv, 313 p.

Unrivaled in its clarity and coverage, this sparkling new edition of Chris Shilling’s classic text is a masterful account of the emergence and development of body matters in sociology and related disciplines.
A timely, well reasoned response to current concerns and controversies across the globe, it provides chapter-by-chapter coverage of the major theories, approaches and studies conducted in the field. Each chapter has been revised and updated, with new discussions of ‘action network theory’, bodywork, pragmatism, the global resurgence of religious identities, ‘new genetics’, biological citizenship, and figuration of the living and dead.
