"Our bodies change over time; posture is ambiguous in a number of cultural and disciplinary realms. Your posture can denote you as healthy or ill, elegant or slovenly, beautiful or ugly. Gilman examines the history and sociology of posture: how society views who we are and what we are able to do by how our bodies appear"-- Adapted from jacket and preface
