9780136156000: Never Too Thin: Why Women Are at War With Their Bodies
From Library Journal:

Two books with different approaches but a common theme: our obsession with thinness. Seid concentrates on the historical and philosophical currents that have contributed to the "thin is healthier" concept, while Gilbert emphasizes the psychological aspects of eating, overeating, and weight control. A clinical psychologist specializing in eating disorders, Gilbert seeks to provide readers with an understanding of why people find dieting difficult and often impossible. She debunks the idea that successful dieters have more "will power," arguing that long-term success has more to do with an individual's social and family circumstances and how a diet is managed. Seid chronicles and analyzes the growth and development of the current emphasis on diet and fitness, examining in depth the influence of the fashion, fitness, and food industries. She argues that the equation of thinness with fitness may be contributing to weight problems rather than counteracting them. Excellent titles both.
