Product description

Review

"Virtually all feminist debate on body image and beauty imagery owes its existence to Susie Orbach's enduring formulation" (Naomi Wolf, bestselling author of The Beauty Myth)

"Susie Orbach's pioneering work isn't just the first to expose the links between sexual politics and female dieting; it remains the classic work on the subject ... it is more essential than ever that Fat is a Feminist Issue be read by every woman" (Susan Faludi, bestselling author of Backlash)

"[Orbach's] pungent psychoanalytic insights and plain good sense ensure that this is still the sharpest, and best bible for the food junkie" (The Independent) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

Updated and with a new introduction. The complete volumes of the bestselling classic that revolutionised women?s relationship with food. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
