Bunny Tales: Behind Closed Doors at the Playboy Mansion

Product : Bunny Tales: Behind Closed Doors at the Playboy Mansion
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : What happens in the Mansion, doesn't stay in the Mansion "How did I get here? I was raised a nice Catholic girl in Ontario, Canada. I am an only child whose parents lavished their attention and resources on me. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree and a law degree, and I'm studying to take the California bar. I am comfortable with my own sexuality, responsible for my own orgasm, and have never been sexually or emotionally abused. And yet for two years, I lived at the infamous Playboy Mansion, rolled in a posse of seven succulent beauties, and was a co-girlfriend of the father of the sexual revolution and the world's largest living hedonist." What is wrong with this picture? The Bunnies. The Girlfriends. The Mansion. The Grotto. The Myth. The Man. The Fantasy. The Reality. Izabella St. James left colder climes for the beaches of Malibu. Young, blond, and pretty, she was looking for fun, and the SoCal nightlife was a powerful magnet. Out clubbing one night, she met Hugh Hefner and his friends. Beyond the silk robe and age-proof good looks, Hugh was a genial man who invited Izabella to join his group of friends and then to move into the world-famous Mansion as one of Hef's girlfriends. (Plural.) "Bunny Tales" is Izabella's story-of a party girl who discovered what work it is to play all the time. Plastic surgery, gorgeous clothes, cool cars, and a generous weekly allowance are the perks of Mansion life, but Hef's girlfriends are a clique, a sorority, a group of best buds, and bitter rivals, the worst of high school in an adult party circuit. Izabella was witness to the growing pains of an empire-and legend-built on a revolution long over. Like the best relationships, "Bunny Tales" is honest and fun, revealing and real, satisfying and surprising.

No Small Thing

Product : No Small Thing
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Full of heart and humor, this coming-of-age tale is no small thing -- the tale of a boy's search for love and identity in the face of longing, abandonment, and uncertainty. When twelve-year-old Nathaniel and his two sisters discover an ad in the paper for a free pony, they can hardly believe their luck. But what will their mother say? Mom's been having a hard time ever since Dad walked out on them four years ago. But caring for a pony might keep Nat and his older sister, Cid, from bickering, and it would mean so much to eight-year-old Queenie. It takes some serious persuasion -- and a promise to use Nat's paper route money for the pony's keep -- but Mom finally relents. And so begins a year of self-discovery, as Nat struggles to deal with his father's absence; look out for his younger sister, who is "different"; and recover from having his heart broken by a rich, pretty girl from school. Life is not always easy, but Nat knows that Smokey, his very own pony, will be waiting for him at the end of each day. Or will he?

    The Bipolar Child: The Definitive and Reassuring Guide to Childhood's Most Misunderstood Disorder

    Product : The Bipolar Child: The Definitive and Reassuring Guide to Childhood's Most Misunderstood Disorder
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Since it first appeared on bookshelves, "The Bipolar Child "has made an indelible mark on the field of psychiatry and has become the resource that families rely upon. Now, with more than 200,000 copies sold, the first book about early-onset bipolar disorder is completely revised and expanded. Bipolar disorder--manic depression--was once thought to be rare in children. Now researchers are discovering not only that bipolar disorder can begin early in life, but that it is much more common than ever imagined. Yet the illness is often misdiagnosed and mistreated with medications that can exacerbate the symptoms. Why? Bipolar disorder manifests itself differently in children than in adults, and in children there is an overlap of symptoms with other childhood psychiatric disorders. As a result, these kids may be labeled with any of a number of psychiatric conditions: "ADHD," "depression," "oppositional defiant disorder," "obsessive-compulsive disorder," or "generalized anxiety disorder." Too often they are treated with stimulants or antidepressants--medications that can actually worsen the bipolar condition. Since the publication of its first edition, "The Bipolar Child "has helped many thousands of families get to the root cause of their children's behaviors and symptoms and find what they need to know. The Papoloses comprehensively detail the diagnosis, explain how to find good treatment and medications, and advise parents about ways to advocate effectively for their children in school. In this edition, a greatly expanded education chapter describes all the changes in educational law due to the 2004 reauthorization of IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), and offers a multitude of ideas for parents and educators to help the children feel more comfortable in the academic environment. The book also contains crucial information about hospitalization, the importance of neuropsychological testing (with a recommended battery of tests), and the world of insurance. Included in these pages is information on promising new drugs, greater insight into the special concerns of teenagers, and additional sections on the impact of the illness on the family. In addition, an entirely new chapter focuses on major advances taking place in the field of molecular genetics and offers hope that researchers will better understand the illness and develop more targeted and easier-to-tolerate medicines. "The Bipolar Child "is rich with the voices of parents, siblings, and the children themselves, opening up the long-closed world of the families struggling with this condition. This book has already proved to be an invaluable resource for parents whose children suffer from mood disorders, as well as for the professionals who treat and educate them, and this new edition is sure to continue to light the way.

His "5-in-5" plan is designed to instill the good habits that will lead to optimum health benefits. Readers will learn how to get in shape with 10-minute workouts, reprogram the way they react to stress, and more. "Owner's Manual Tips" give specific ways to apply the material to real life.

Only in the mighty, magical empire of Netheril are men a force to be reckoned with. Bored and haughty in his midair castle, the Netherese mage Candlemas bets fellow wizard Sysquemalyn that a certain barbarian who has caught his eye can survive the most savage tests his friend -- and deadly rival -- can devise. The only rule: The tests must offer the subject some chance to survive, however slight. Of course, "playing fair" is a concept as alien to the wizards of Netheril as "mercy." But the subject of their wager, Sunbright Steelshanks of the Rengarth Tribe, has a mind -- and a will -- of his own. And Candlemas and Sysquemalyn are not the only players in this lethal game of swords and sorcery . . . .

    Product : Yearning: Living Between How It Is & How It Ought to Be
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Does God want us fulfilled?Popular psychology says we should be fulfilled. Advertisements tease us with dozens of ways we can be fulfilled. Many preachers and book promise Christian fulfillment.But in this surprising (and surprisingly liberating) book, Craig Barnes suggests we weren't created to be whole or complete. With a fresh reading of the early chapters of Genesis, he says that much of our pain and disillusionment arises from wrong expectations of the gospel and of life.Echoing comedian Bob Newhart, Barnes "would like to make a motion that we face reality." He candidly draws from his own experience asa son, a student, a husband, a father and a pastor to help us see what we all know but are so reluctant to say aloud--that biblical living will not save us from crises or unfulfillment.Barnes writes for anyone who knows that faith must be tough enough to "hold up in the emergency rooms of life." But he doesn't merely help us face reality. He helps us see how our needs and limitations are gifts, the best opportunities we have to receive God's grace. Because of that, Yearning may be the most honest and the most helpful book you'll read this year.

    Product : Long Way Down: An Epic Journey by Motorcycle from Scotland to South Africa
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Eighteen countries. Five shock absorbers. Two bikers. One amazing adventure... After their fantastic trip round the world in 2004, fellow actors and bike fanatics Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman couldn't shake the travel bug. Inspired by their UNICEF visits to Africa, they knew they had to go back and experience this extraordinary continent in more depth. And so they set off on their 15,000-mile journey with two new BMWs loaded up for the trip. Their route took them from John O'Groats at the northernmost tip of Scotland to Cape Agulhas on the southernmost tip of South Africa. Along the way they rode some of the toughest terrain in the world -- and met some of the friendliest people. They rode their bikes right up to the pyramids in Egypt and visited Luke Skywalker's house in Tunisia. They met people who had triumphed over terrifying experiences -- former childhood soldiers in Uganda and children living amidst the minefields of Ethiopia. They had a close encounter with a family of gorillas in Rwanda and were nearly trampled by a herd of elephants in Botswana. Riding through spectacular scenery, often in extreme temperatures, Ewan and Charley faced their hardest challenges yet. With their trademark humor and honesty they tell their story -- the drama, the dangers and sheer exhilaration of riding together again, through a continent filled with magic and wonder.

    Description : This second volume in Kettelhack's series takes on the "terrible twos." Here people in recovery share their experiences and insights in dealing with long-suppressed feelings of anger, loss, guilt, love, and self-acceptance.

Guy Kettelhack has written seven books on recovery. He is completing a Master's degree in psychoanalysis, and is an analyst-in-training at the Boston and New York Centers for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies. A graduate of Middlebury College, Kettelhack has also done graduate work in English literature at Bread Loaf School of English at Oxford University. He lives in New York City.

Irreverent and gossipy, the books are packed with carnal tidbits and eye-opening revelations. Sex has long been the common currency of the Hollywood Dream Factory. Early movie moguls packed their epics with ravishing dancing girls and frequently used the casting couch to determine who should be rocketed to stardom. Louise Brooks and Clara Bow were both brought down by sex scandals--the latter, in a rumored liaison with the USC football team. Mary Astor's career was ruined when explicit extracts from her diaries were read in open court, and silent star Alla Nazimova began the trend for Hollywood lesbians--Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, and Claudette Colbert were all members of the "Sewing Circle."

    Sutton

    Product : Sutton
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Born in the squalid Irish slums of Brooklyn, in the first year of the twentieth century, Willie Sutton came of age at a time when banks were out of control. If they weren't taking brazen risks, causing millions to lose their jobs and homes, they were shamelessly seeking bailouts. Trapped in a cycle of bank panics, depressions and soaring unemployment, Sutton saw only one way out, only one way to win the girl of his dreams. So began the career of America's most successful bank robber. Over three decades Sutton became so good at breaking into banks, and such a master at breaking out of prisons, police called him one of the most dangerous men in New York, and the FBI put him on its first-ever Most Wanted List. But the public rooted for Sutton. He never fired a shot, after all, and his victims were merely those bloodsucking banks. When he was finally caught for good in 1952, crowds surrounded the jail and chanted his name. Blending vast research with vivid imagination, Pulitzer Prize-winner J.R. Moehringer brings Willie Sutton blazing back to life. In Moehringer's retelling, it was more than need or rage at society that drove Sutton. It was one unforgettable woman. In all Sutton's crimes and confinements, his first love (and first accomplice) was never far from his thoughts. And when Sutton finally walked free--a surprise pardon on Christmas Eve, 1969--he immediately set out to find her. Poignant, comic, fast-paced and fact-studded, "Sutton" tells a story of economic pain that feels eerily modern, while unfolding a story of doomed love, which is forever timeless.

    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : A colorful account of the final years of Lehman Brothers, from 9/11 at their Ground Zero offices through the firm's bankruptcy, including vivid portraits of volatile workers, the financial meltdown, and the company's ultimate collapse--all while the author fought his own personal battle with mental illness. Like Michael Lewis's Liar's Poker, the classic memoir of the Salomon Brothers' investment bank in the 1980s, Jared Dillian takes readers behind the scenes at Lehman Brothers, exposing its insane and often hilarious corporate culture. As Lehman's head ETF trader, Dillian was an integral part of the firm in its final years--more than $1 trillion in wealth passed through his hands. But the exhilarating and explosively stressful job took its toll on Dillian, exacerbating the symptoms of his undiagnosed bipolar and obsessive compulsive disorders, leading to a downward spiral that landed him in a psychiatric ward. Dillian put his life back together, coming back to work healthier than ever before, but he soon realized that Lehman had gone mad, making outrageous bets on the real estate market and was quickly headed for self destruction. Street Freak is a raw, visceral, and wholly original memoir of life inside the belly of the beast during the most tumultuous time in financial history. In his electrifying and fresh voice, Dillian takes readers on a wild ride through madness and back, both inside Lehman Brothers and himself.

    What We Talk about When We Talk about Anne Frank: Stories

    Product : What We Talk about When We Talk about Anne Frank: Stories
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : These eight new stories from the celebrated novelist and short-story writer Nathan Englander display a gifted young author grappling with the great questions of modern life, with a command of language and the imagination that place Englander at the very forefront of contemporary American fiction. The title story, inspired by Raymond Carver's masterpiece, is a provocative portrait of two marriages in which the Holocaust is played out as a devastating parlor game. In the outlandishly dark "Camp Sundown" vigilante justice is undertaken by a group of geriatric campers in a bucolic summer enclave. "Free Fruit for Young Widows" is a small, sharp study in evil, lovingly told by a father to a son. "Sister Hills" chronicles the history of Israel's settlements from the eve of the Yom Kippur War through the present, a political fable constructed around the tale of two mothers who strike a terrible bargain to save a child. Marking a return to two of Englander's classic themes, "Peep Show" and "How We Avenged the Blums" wrestle with sexual longing and ingenuity in the face of adversity and peril. And "Everything I Know About My Family on My Mother's Side" is suffused with an intimacy and tenderness that break new ground for a writer who seems constantly to be expanding the parameters of what he can achieve in the short form. Beautiful and courageous, funny and achingly sad, Englander's work is a revelation.

In her thirteen bestsellers, Linda Fairstein has taken millions of fans inside sinister worlds that most of us can't even imagine. Thanks to her extensive experience as a New York City prosecutor, she creates situations that are stunning for both their compulsive readability and their authenticity. Taking Alexandra Cooper into the fascinating world of New York City's most beloved and storied restaurants, "Night Watch" continues her tradition of breathtaking suspense storytelling. Forty-eight hours after Alexandra Cooper arrives in France to visit her boyfriend and famed restaurateur, Luc Rouget, her vacation in paradise is cut short when a young woman from the village is found murdered. The only evidence discovered on the body is one of Luc's matchboxes promoting his new restaurant in New York. But before the investigation begins, Alex is summoned back to New York to handle a high profile case. Mohammed Gil-Darsin, the distinguished and wealthy Head of the World Economic Bureau, has been arrested and accused of attacking a maid in his hotel. As the world watches in fascination to see how the scandal will unfold, Alex finds her attention torn between preparing the alleged victim to testify and a murder case with ties too close to home. A second body is found with Luc's matchbox--this time in Brooklyn--and Alex begins to fear that the two cases may not be as unrelated as she thought, and that uncovering the sordid secrets of the city's most wealthy and powerful could cost her and her loved ones everything they hold dear.

    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Clyde Edgerton's manual will be packed with tips and wisdom for dads of all ages (especially expectant dads). His way of dealing with his three youngest children--from pre-birth to schooling--involves, of course, lots of humor, but also the sound advice of a lifelong educator. He knows from all four kids that you can't start reading to a baby too early; that seemingly silly games like "Sky Television" ("place a blanket...on the lawn...and lie on your back with the rest of the family") are far from silly; and that Ray Charles' recording of "Hit the Road, Jack" is good fodder for pantomime, because two characters participate. Special asides in the text are marked as C.O.D. (for the Considerably Older Dad). Among other gems of Edgerton's personal experience, take these to heart: "A few weeks before the baby is born, go ahead and install the car seat. This could take six to eight hours....When the baby is about three months old and you need a crib, you will be so sleep-deprived you will not recognize your baby and will be falling down a lot. Assemble the crib before the baby is born." "By the way, I'd suggest that you do not video record the birth until after the birth part." "When a father is afraid of making his child unhappy, and thus asks the child to make certain kinds of decisions, like "Well, Johnny, would you like to go to bed or stay up?" then the father may in a few years be taking directions from a worried, impatient, frowning, unsteady child." Writing from experience, observation, and his imagination, Clyde Edgerton provides caution and joy in equal measure. Happy Father's Day

" " Just seventeen years old, Henry IX, known as William, is a king bound by the restraints of the regency yet anxious to prove himself. With the French threatening battle and the Catholics sowing the seeds of rebellion at home, William trusts only three people: his older sister Elizabeth; his best friend and loyal counselor, Dominic; and Minuette, a young orphan raised as a royal ward by William's mother, Anne Boleyn. Against a tide of secrets, betrayal, and murder, William finds himself fighting for the very soul of his kingdom. Then, when he and Dominic both fall in love with Minuette, romantic obsession looms over a new generation of Tudors. One among them will pay the price for a king's desire, as a shocking twist of fate changes England's fortunes forever. Look for special features inside.

    Product : Theory of Film: The Redemption of Physical Reality
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Siegfried Kracauer's classic study, originally published in 1960, explores the distinctive qualities of the cinematic medium. The book takes its place alongside works in classical film theory by such figures as Bela Balazs, Rudolf Arnheim, and Andre Bazin, among others, and has met with much critical dispute. In this new edition, Miriam Bratu Hansen, examining the book in the context of Kracauer's extensive film criticism from the 1920s, provides a framework for appreciating the significance of "Theory of Film" for contemporary film theory.

    Women Writing Culture

    Product : Women Writing Culture
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : In this collection of new reflections on the sexual politics, racial history, and moral predicaments of anthropology, feminist scholars explore a wide range of visions of identity and difference. How are feminists redefining the poetics and politics of ethnography? What are the contradictions of women studying women? How have gender, race, class, and nationality been scripted into the canon? Through autobiography, fiction, historical analysis, experimental essays, and criticism, the contributors offer exciting responses to these questions. Several pieces reinvestigate the work of key women anthropologists like Elsie Clews Parsons, Margaret Mead, and Ruth Benedict, while others reevaluate the writings of women of color like Zora Neale Hurston, Ella Deloria, and Alice Walker. Some selections explore how sexual politics help to determine what gets written and what is valued in the anthropological canon. Other pieces explore new forms of feminist ethnography that 'write culture' experimentally, thereby challenging prevailing, male-biased anthropological models.

    The Global Carbon Cycle

    Product : The Global Carbon Cycle
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : "The Global Carbon Cycle" is a short introduction to this essential geochemical driver of the Earth's climate system, written by one of the world's leading climate-science experts. In this one-of-a-kind primer, David Archer engages readers in clear and simple terms about the many ways the global carbon cycle is woven into our climate system. He begins with a concise overview of the subject, and then looks at the carbon cycle on three different time scales, describing how the cycle interacts with climate in very distinct ways in each. On million-year time scales, feedbacks in the carbon cycle stabilize Earth's climate and oxygen concentrations. Archer explains how on hundred-thousand-year glacial/interglacial time scales, the carbon cycle in the ocean amplifies climate change, and how, on the human time scale of decades, the carbon cycle has been dampening climate change by absorbing fossil-fuel carbon dioxide into the oceans and land biosphere. A central question of the book is whether the carbon cycle could once again act to amplify climate change in centuries to come, for example through melting permafrost peatlands and methane hydrates. "The Global Carbon Cycle" features a glossary of terms, suggestions for further reading, and explanations of equations, as well as a forward-looking discussion of open questions about the global carbon cycle.

Staggs reveals "everything" about the movie--from the famous European actress Margo Channing was based on to the hot-blooded romance on-set between Bette Davis and costar Gary Merrill, from the jump-start the movie gave Marilyn Monroe's career to the capstone it put on director Joseph L. Mankeiwicz's.

    Product : Brainworks: The Mind-Bending Science of How You See, What You Think, and Who You Are
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Admit it. When you hear "neuroscience," you expect something abstract and remote, very complex, of little practical use. But this time? It's personal. National Geographic "Into" "Your Brain "makes YOU the test subject of an array of astonishing experiments. Your brain is going to be stimulated, fooled, and ultimately amazed, as scientists and other experts show you how this three-pound blob of gray matter makes you, you. Rather than simply displaying a collection of puzzlers or stating what happens during an illusion, this captivating book guides you to experience visual tricks firsthand and then explains your brain's reaction in clear, user-friendly language--giving every reader a strong personal interest in finding out why his or her mind acts the way it does. The companion to a highly anticipated, three-part series airing on the National Geographic Channel in Spring 2011, this book will definitely mess with your head--to entertain you and show you the very cool complexities of how your brain does its job. In three sections--Sights, Sounds, and Memories--you'll see for yourself why visual illusions hoodwink the brain. You'll hear how sounds can provoke strong emotions and understand your brain's response to them. And you'll think of events that may not have actually happened, in order to learn how the mind can create a false memory. " " "Into Your Brain "brings together a crack team of scientists and researchers from a wide range of fields, including neurology, psychology, chemistry, audiology, and ophthalmology. Best-selling author Oliver Sachs, awareness expert Dan Simons, and memory expert Elizabeth Loftus are just a few of the notables who lend their considerable brainpower to this unprecedented project. The book also draws on the know-how of those who traffic in brain tricks--illusionists like Penn & Teller, artists like color expert Beau Lotto, and sound designers like Julian Treasure--to bring each mind-bending illusion to life. Smart, engaging, exciting, and deeply worthwhile, "Into Your Brain "pulls you in, manipulates your mind, and leaves you with a better understanding--as well as a richer appreciation--of the marvels that go on up there in the old noggin.

    Black Americans in the Revolutionary Era: A Brief History with Documents

    Product : Black Americans in the Revolutionary Era: A Brief History with Documents
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : In this fresh look at liberty and freedom in the Revolutionary era from the perspective of black Americans, Woody Holton recounts the experiences of slaves who seized freedom by joining the British as well as those -- slave and free -- who served in Patriot military forces. Holton's introduction examines the conditions of black American life on the eve of colonial independence and the ways in which Revolutionary rhetoric about liberty provided African Americans with the language and inspiration for advancing their cause. Despite the rhetoric, however, most black Americans remained enslaved after the Revolution. The introduction outlines ways African Americans influenced the course of the Revolution and continued to be affected by its aftermath. Amplifying these themes are nearly forty documents -- including personal narratives, petitions, letters, poems, advertisements, pension applications, and images -- that testify to the diverse goals and actions of African Americans during the Revolutionary era. Document headnotes and annotations, a chronology, questions for consideration, a selected bibliography, and index offer additional pedagogical support.

    Jainism: An Introduction

    Product : Jainism: An Introduction
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Jainism evokes images of monks wearing face-masks to protect insects and mico-organisms from being inhaled. Or of Jains sweeping the ground in front of them to ensure that living creatures are not inadvertently crushed: a practice of non-violence so radical as to defy easy comprehension. Yet for all its apparent exoticism, Jainism is still little understood in the West. What is this mysterious philosophy which originated in the 6th century BCE, whose absolute requirement is vegetarianism, and which now commands a following of four million adherents both in its native India and diaspora communities across the globe? In his welcome new treatment of the Jain religion, Long makes an ancient tradition fully intelligible to the modern reader. Plunging back more than two and a half millennia, to the plains of northern India and the life of a prince who--much like the Buddha--gave up a life of luxury to pursue enlightenment, Long traces the history of the Jain community from founding sage Mahavira to the present day. He explores asceticism, worship, the life of the Jain layperson, relations between Jainism and other Indic traditions, the Jain philosophy of relativity, and the implications of Jain ideals for the contemporary world. The book presents Jainism in a way that is authentic and engaging to specialists and non-specialists alike.

    Body Art: Performing the Subject

    Product : Body Art: Performing the Subject
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : An examination of the social and cultural significance of body art by a major new voice. The past few years have seen an explosion of interest in body art, in which the artist's body is integral to the work of art. With the revoking of NEA funding for such artists as Karen Finley, Tim Miller, and others, public awareness and media coverage of body-oriented performances have increased. Yet the roots of body art extend to the 1960s and before. In this definitive book, Amelia Jones explores body art projects from the 1960s and 1970s and relates their impact to the work of body artists active today, providing a new conceptual framework for defining postmodernism in the visual arts. Jones begins with a discussion of the shifting intellectual terrain of the 1950s and 1960s, focusing on the work of Ana Mendieta. Moving to an examination of the reception of Jackson Pollock's "performative" acts of painting, she argues that Pollock is a pivotal figure between modernism and postmodernism. The book continues with explorations of Vito Acconci and Hannah Wilke, whose practices exemplify a new kind of performance that arose in the late 1960s, one that represents a dramatic shift in the conception of the artistic subject. Jones then surveys the work of a younger generation of artists -- including Laurie Anderson, Orlan, Maureen Connor, Lyle Ashton Harris, Laura Aguilar, and Bob Flanagan -- whose recent work integrates technology and issues of identity to continue to expand the critique begun in earlier body art projects. Embracing an exhilarating mix of methodologies and perspectives (including feminism, queer theory, philosophy, psychoanalysis, and literary theory), this rigorous and elegantexamination of body art provides rich historical insight and essential context that rethinks the parameters of postmodern culture.
