  • Fat-Talk Nation, The Human Costs of America’s War on Fat
    has produced a generation of young people who are obsessed with their bodies and whose most fundamental sense of self comes from their size It reveals that regardless of their weight many people feel miserable about their bodies and almost no one is able to lose weight and keep it off Greenhalgh argues that attempts to rescue America from obesity induced national decline are damaging the bodily and emotional health of young people and disrupting families and intimate relationships Fatness today is not primarily about health Greenhalgh asserts more fundamentally it is about morality and political inclusion exclusion or citizenship To unpack the complexity of fat politics today Greenhalgh introduces a cluster of terms biocitizen biomyth biopedagogy bioabuse biocop and fat personhood and shows how they work together to produce such deep investments in the attainment of the thin fit body These concepts which constitute a theory of the workings of our biocitizenship culture offer powerful tools for understanding how obesity has come to remake who we are as a nation and how we might work to reverse course for the next generation Experts Fat Talk Nation is an extremely rich book well written well resarched provocative The set of terms that Susan Greenhalgh introduces biocitizen biomyth fat talk biopedagogy bioabuse bioscopy and fat subjectivity are quite useful I can imagine them becoming central terms in the fields of body studies health studies anthropology women s and gender studies and of course fat studies The essays by young people are a gold mine and the fact that Greenhalgh listens more closely to these stories makes her work absolutely stand out Amy Farrell Ann and John Curley Chair of Liberal Arts and Professor of American Studies and Women s and Gender Studies Dickinson College author of Fat Shame Stigma and the
