Summary
"In this new study, people-watcher Desmond Morris turns his skill and attention to the female form and takes the reader on a guided tour from head to toe. Highlighting the evolutionary functions of biological features that all women share, Morris explores the enhancements and constraints that human societies have developed in the quest for control and perfection of the female body. Written from a zoologist's perspective and packed full of scientific fact, fascinating accounts, and thought-provoking conclusions, The Naked Woman builds on Desmond Morris's experience as an observer of the human animal."--Jacket
