Summary
"Diets and dieting have concerned - and sometimes obsessed - human societies for centuries. The dieters' regime is about many things, among them is the control of weight and the body, the politics of beauty, discipline and even self-harm, personal and societal demands for improved heath, spiritual harmony with the universe, and ethical codes of existence. An A-Z encyclopedia, this reference work spans many periods and cultures as the cultural and medical historian Sander Gilman lays out the history of diets and dieting in a series of articles." "This volume is a reference tool presenting the historical, popular, and scientific context for diets and dieting from the ancient world to the present. The entries range from biography to large survey essays, which cover the historical and cultural context for contemporary dieting culture and celebrity within the longer historical view, and across cultures."--BOOK JACKET
