Organizing Bodies: Policy, Institutions and Workby Linda McKie, Nick Watson
This has been a notable upsurge of interest in the body, both in terms of empirical and theoretical study and debate. Contributions to this book move these debates forward by considering a range of bodies as active in the social and economic processes of policy-making, institutions, and employment. Contributors consider the body as a site of agency, resistance, and compromise and reflect upon the reluctance of sociology to engage with the body and notions of embodiment.
