There has been a notable upsurge of interest in the body, both in terms of empirical and theoretical study and debate. Contributions to this book move these debates forward by considering a range of bodies as active in their own construction in social and economic processes. Authors consider the body as a site of agency, resistance and compromise and reflect upon the reluctance of sociology to engage with the body and notions of embodiment.
