"I cannot recommend Consuming Passions too highly." - Calgary Herald

"Eating disorders are complex, and this book serves up meaty arguments for feminists tired over oversimplification." - Toronto Star

Twenty-two experts share their extensive knowledge on women's preoccupation with body size. They consider the continuum of eating behaviours ranging from dieting and exercise for weight control to anorexia and bulimia, and explore recent research in such areas as failure of dieting to control weight, and the increasingly disputed links traditionally made between weight and health.
