Becoming Anorexic

Becoming Anorexic. A sociological study, Muriel Darmon
Routledge « Advances in Sociology », London, 2016.

This book draws on empirical research – both interviews and observation – conducted in and outside medical settings with anorexic girls, medical staff, teachers and other teenagers of the same age. Richly illustrated with qualitative research, Becoming Anorexic : A Sociological Approach demonstrates that anorexia can be viewed as a very particular work of self-transformation, which requires specific – and social – dispositions’. As such, it will appeal to scholars of sociology and anthropology with an interest in health and illness, the body, social class and gender.
