9780415163330: The Thin Woman: Feminism, Post-structuralism and the Social Psychology of Anorexia Nervosa (Women and Psychology)

The Thin Woman provides an in-depth discussion of anorexia nervosa from a feminist social psychological standpoint. Medicine, psychiatry and psychology have all presented us with particular ways of understanding eating disorders, yet the notion of 'anorexia' as a medical condition limits our understanding of anorexia and the extent to which we can explore it as a socially, discursively produced problem.
Based on original research using historical and contemporary literature on anorexia nervosa, and a series of interviews with women diagnosed as anorexic, The Thin Woman offers new insights into the problem. It will prove useful both to those with an interest in eating disorders and gender, and to those interested in the new developments in feminist post-structuralist theory and discourse analytic research in psychology.

About the Author:

Helen Malson is Lecturer in Psychology at the University of East London.

Review:

"This concise, formidable, and mainly internally consistent treatise transports one into the world of social science...Read this book and grasp the strengths and weaknesses of social science when it addresses the human condition and individual existence. It has appeal and challenges for all of us: medical practitioners interested in individuals and medical scientists interested in the molecule, as well as sociologists and sufferers seeking a reassuring rationalisation of the psychosocial pathology contributing to their condition.."
-"Lancet
