Greenwood Press,
Pub. Date:
While for many, body adornment and modification brings to mind the pierced and tattooed factions of contemporary youth, the 207 subjects in DeMello's (cultural anthropology, U. of California at Davis) alphabetically-arranged encyclopedia also include animal and human branding, sexual reassignment surgery, makeup, and P.T. Barnum. Additionally, the body adornment practices of major cultural and ethnic groups are discussed, as are individuals key to the popularization and understanding of body modification in the West--among them Barnum, whose inked freaks brought tattooing to a wider audience. Entries are crossed referenced. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
