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

28 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English and held by 1,389 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

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
