Om boka

"This book is excellent! The text combines an impressive collection of work that highlights the intersection of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality and socio-economic perspectives in our discussion about obesity. The scholarship is current and makes unique contributions to the field of fat studies." -- Esther D. Rothblum, Professor of Women's Studies, San Diego State University "This is an interesting and often provocative collection that remedies large gaps in the scholarly literature. I know of no other book that focuses on obesity in the Canadian context in a critical fashion." -- Katie LeBesco, Associate Dean, Marymount Manhattan College
