Fasting girls : the history of anorexia nervosa by Joan Jacobs Brumberg( Book )

23 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Fasting Girls first appeared in 1988, anorexia nervosa was widely considered a new disease. In fact, most people thought it would go away. Joan Jacobs Brumberg's book changed that perception by demonstrating when and where anorexia nervosa originated and why it has become so "popular" in our time. A classic work that is both a biography of the disease and a sustained inquiry into the cultural forces that perpetuate it, Fasting Girls - newly revised and updated - will stand for years as the authoritative book on the subject." "Fasting Girls looks to the history of anorexia nervosa for answers to some of the most persistent questions about its origins, demographics, and treatment. Brumberg presents a tableau of female self-denial dating back as far as the thirteenth century: medieval martyrs who used starvation to demonstrate religious devotion, "wonders of science" whose families capitalized on their ability to survive on flower petals and air, silent screen stars whose strict "slimming" regimens inspired a generation. Along the way she traces the shifting social and cultural influences that have shaped how the disorder is perceived. Incisive, compassionate, and illuminating, Fasting Girls offers real understanding to victims and their families, clinicians, and all who are interested in the history and future of this complex and characteristically female disease."--Jacket
Mission for life : the story of the family of Adoniram Judson, the dramatic events of the first American foreign mission, and the course of evangelical religion in the nineteenth century by Joan Jacobs Brumberg( Book )

5 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adoniram Judson (1788-1850) was born at Malden and reared at Plymouth, Massachusetts, and was the first American to become a fully committed evangelical foreign missionary, first for the Congregationalists in 1812, but almost immediately for the American Baptists. He served chiefly in Burma, married three times (his first two wives died in mission field, and the third was a fiction writer who thereafter used her talents as a missionary publicist)--and was notable for his will- ingness to use popular cultural forms to push the cause of religion. Descendants lived in New York, Pennsylvania and elsewhere

Thin by Lauren Greenfield( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This work chronicles an emotional journey that follows four patients through the Renfrew Center, a residential facility in Florida dedicated to the treatment of eating disorders, and includes portraits of fifteen other residents of diverse ages and backgrounds. Critically acclaimed for Girl Culture and Fast Forward, the author continues her exploration of contemporary female culture with this work, a book about eating disorders. The photographs are paired with extensive interviews and journal entries from twenty girls and women who are suffering from various afflictions. We meet 15-year-old Brittany, who is convinced that being thin is the only way to gain acceptance among her peers; Alisa, a divorced mother of two whose hatred of her body is manifested in her relentless compulsion to purge; Shelly, who has been battling anorexia for six years and has had a feeding tube surgically implanted in her stomach; as well as many others. Alongside these personal stories are essays on the sociology and science of eating disorders by renowned researchers Joan Jacobs Brumberg, Dr. David Herzog, and Dr. Michael Strober. These intimate photographs, frank voices, and thoughtful discussions combine to make the book a portrait of profound understanding
