Breasts: A Natural And Unnatural History
Feted and fetishized, the breast is an evolutionary masterpiece. But in the modern world, the breast is changing. Breasts are getting bigger, arriving earlier and attracting newfangled chemicals. Increasingly, the odds are stacked against us in the struggle with breast cancer–even among men. What makes breasts so mercurial–and so vulnerable? The intrepid science journalist Florence Williams sets out to uncover the latest science from the fields of anthropology, biology, and medicine. Her investigation follows the life cycle of the breast from puberty to pregnancy to menopause. Endowed with a witty and inquisitive voice, Williams explores where breasts came from, where they have ended up, and what we can do to save them. ‘Florence Williams's double-D talents as a reporter and writer lift this book high above the genre and separate it from the ranks of ordinary science writing.  Breasts is illuminating, surprising, clever, important. Williams is an author to savour and look forward to.’ Mary Roach Florence Williams is a contributing editor at Outside Magazine and a freelance writer for the New York Times, New York Times Magazine, New Republic and numerous other publications. Her work often focuses on the environment, health and science. In 2007-2008, she was a Scripps Fellow at the Center of Environmental Journalism at the University of Colorado. textpublishing.com.au
