In the same, lively style as his classics, Manwatching and Bodywatching, Desmond Morris now focuses his attention and skill on the female form.
The Naked Woman builds on Desmond Morris’s unrivalled experience as an observer of the human animal. In this, his latest book, he turns his attention and skill to the female form, taking the reader on a guided tour “from head to toe.” Highlighting the evolutionary functions of various physiological traits, Morris’s study explores the various forms of enhancement and constraint that human societies have developed in the quest for the perfect female form. All this is delivered in his trademark style, communicating what is often complex detail in direct, clear and focused language.
