The Obsession

Reflections on the Tyranny of Slenderness

Chernin, Kim

(Book - 1994)
The Obsession
Print
The Obsession is a deeply committed and beautifully written analysis of our society's increasing demand that women be thin. It offers a careful, 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 about the meaning of food and its rejection.

An interesting look at the reasons for the obsession with being thin and some historical perspective.
