Inhaltsangabe: "You've got to love Nancy Friday. She successfully explored mother-daughter envy in My Mother/My Self [and] female sexual fantasy in My Secret Garden" (People magazine). Now, in The Power of Beauty, she explores a provocative subject: how looks affect our lives, and life affects our looks.
Friday traces the past 25 years of changes in women's attitudes about self-esteem, appearance and sexuality. Using her own life as a springboard, she then takes us through the Patriarchal '50s, Revolutionary '60s, Supersexual '70s, Narcissistic '80s, and Empty Package '90s as she explores the possibility of a future free from the twin obsessions of the power of beauty and the beauty of power and offers sparkling commentary on a dazzling array of subjects. From the runways of Paris to the two-parent nursery, from current movies and watershed media events to the timeless wisdom of some of literature's and psychology's most perceptive thinkers, Friday writes large, creating a canvas as complex and richly colored as her subject.
Rezension: Blending her own life experiences with years of research, Nancy Friday (whose previous books include My Mother/My Self and My Secret Garden) exposes the power of beauty--how it shapes our priorities as well as our self identities. Each stage of human development is influenced by culture's idolization of beauty, says Friday, who leads the reader through a chronological study, starting with babyhood and ending with old age. Friday has never shied away from true confessions or taboo topics--and there are certainly plenty here: she addresses beauty as competition in the workplace, the new male vanity, secret feelings about our genitals, and the emotional damage she has inflicted upon herself and her lovers in her quest for adoration. More than a psychological examination, The Power of Beauty is a challenge for men and women to take responsibility for their part in the oppression and angst that is caused by the obsession with beauty.
