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.


We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
