Description - Beauty and Business by Philip Scranton

Historians explore how our ideas of "attractiveness" are influenced by a broad range of social and economic factors. They illuminate the ways in which beauty has been made, bought and sold in modern America through studying examples such as the sexual dynamics of bathing suits, the deeper meanings of corsets and the social role of the African - American hair salon.
