From anorexia, sexuality, skin, preganancy, the mouth, menstruation, biopsychiatry, and male hysteria, to the heart, this work examines the relationships between feminism, the body and biomedicine. Bringing together the work of such theorists as Sara Ahmed, Lynda Birke, Ailbhe Smyth and Lorna Weir, the book uses post-conventional/post-modern theory in the area of bio/logical body and the "clinic". The vital signs of the body - breathing and the pulse - are treated discursively.
