Fat is a Feminist Issue, Susie Orbach's revolutionary work, first published twenty years ago and now established as a classic, shows how fat is not about food, but rather about protection, sex, mothering, strength, assertion, anger, love. Fat can be a response to the way you are seen by your husband, your mother, your boss - and yourself. By understanding your investment in being fat and your subsconscious fears of being thin you can transform food into a friend. Learning to eat out of stomach hunger rather than mouth hunger means food can be a pleasure which nourishes you when you are hungry rather than something you have a love/hate relationship with. And in Fat is a Feminist Issue II, Susie Orbach lays out a programme that will help you conquer compulsive eating, a step-by-step guide that shows how you can break the binge-purge cycle and stop dieting forever.

"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)
