An interesting history of eating disorders. Perhaps they were not as prevalent in the past as they are currently, but eating disorders were still present. This book looks at both why people (primarily women) have had eating disorders over time as well as society's reactions to those who have eating disorders (and hypothesizing the role society may have played).
