Abstract

‘It is only since the late-twentieth century that we, in the capitalist West, have come to see our choices in the marketplace as self-defining and self-actualizing. This ‘explosion of market-based choices’ that has ‘come to inform the social construction of identities’ is what Alison Phipps addresses in her compelling and very readable book, The Politics of the Body: Gender in a Neoliberal and Neoconservative Age.’
