9780099453581: The Naked Woman

The human female form is the brilliant end-point of millions of years of evolution, loaded with amazing adjustments and subtle refinements. It is the most remarkable organism on the planet. At different times and in different places, human societies have tried to improve on nature, modifying and embellishing the female form in a thousand different ways. In this new study, people-watcher Desmond Morris turns his skill and attention to the female form and takes the reader on a guided tour 'from head to toe'. Highlighting the evolutionary functions of biological features that all women share, Morris explores the enhancements and constraints that human societies have developed in the quest for control and perfection of the female form. Written from a zoologist's perspective and packed full of scientific fact, fascinating anecdote and thought-provoking conclusions, The Naked Woman builds on Desmond Morris's unrivalled experience as an observer of the human animal.

Review:

"The naked ape will be a wiser and better hominid by the time he has thumbed his way through to the end" ( The Times)

"An explosive study of the female form" ( Mail on Sunday)

"A clear and careful introduction to an involved subject" ( The Times (Praise for Manwatching))

From the Publisher:

The Naked Woman is very much in the same tradition as the classics Manwatching and Bodywatching. Fully illustrated with line drawings and full-colour plate sections.
