Book Description Palgrave Macmillan, UK, 2006. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First Edition. 224 Pages. Samantha Crompvoets argues that the current treatment of the post-surgical body within breast cancer culture and wider society allows no space for women to reconceptualize their bodies as normal, feminine, or complete in the absence of a breast or breasts. Instead, the mastectomized body is positioned as transient, to be 'fixed' as soon as possible. Further, that that breast restoration, wearing a prosthesis, or surgical reconstruction, is wrongly situated as the only mechanism available for women to renegotiate a complete sense of self. Drawing on detailed empirical study of a group of women recovering from breast cancer, the book moves beyond individual experiences to examine the politics of the choices available to women and what constrains and influences those choices. This approach provides a powerful analysis of the decision-making dilemmas facing women after breast cancer surgery, and the socio-political context in which their decisions about breast restoration are made.

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 224 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.6in. x 0.6in.Surgical breast reconstruction is seen by many women as the only procedure that will ultimately enable transcendence of the temporary, mastectomized state and facilitate rehabilitation of their true, familiar, embodied self. Unlike other texts examining breast cancer experience, this book argues that this self-understanding is profoundly influenced by breast cancer culture and the medicalization of the post-surgical body. In addition the research establishes a strong link between, on the one hand, the personal feelings and actions of women with breast cancer, and on the other, powerful discourses and practices of the breast cancer movement. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781403999009
