Abstract
This updated edition of Joan Jacobs Brumberg's "Fasting Girls", gives a history of women's food-refusal dating back as far as the sixteenth century. The book tells of medieval martyrs who used starvation to show religious devotion, "wonders of science" whose families capitalized on their ability to survive on flower petals and air, and silent screen stars whose strict "slimming" regimens inspired a generation. It also looks at how the Industrial Revolution produced a disorder that continues to render women helpless. The book offers understanding to victims and their families, clinicians, and all women who are interested in the origins and future of this complex, modern and characteristically female disease.
