A Cultural Encyclopedia of the Breast

About two weeks ago I received a UPS delivery. It looked like books, and I wondered how I could have forgotten that I ordered some. I was surprised to find it was a box of brochures for my forthcoming book a Cultural Encyclopedia of the Breast!

The brochures are beautiful. I can’t wait to see the actual book!

Please recommend the book to your local and college libraries–and to anyone and everyone who might be interested! There are nearly 150 entries on a variety of breast-related topics, including Amazons, Beauty Ideals, Breast Cancer, Breastfeeding, Corsets, Dance, Eating Disorders, Pin-Up Girls, the Virgin Mary, and the Women’s Movement. The entries were written by a group of international scholars (including me!) with expertise in various disciplines and edited by yours truly.

The books should be out in August 2014, but there is a special promo code offering 25% off for pre-orders of the print copy by June 30, 2014.

    • Thanks, Susan!
      As you can imagine I have heard lots of jokes about this project.
      I gave one of the brochures to a friend, and she accidentally put it in her teenage son’s room when she was gathering up some of his junk. A little while later, she heard, “Mom! Why did you put a paper about breasts in my room?” 🙂
