Body Modification Publisher's Summary

Modifying your body may seem to be an extreme thing to do. But when we build muscles, lose weight, pierce our ears, or get a hair transplant, aren't we modifying our bodies? What powerful needs make us do it? This audiobook explores the history of these sometimes strange and sometimes commonplace customs from around the world.

Body Modification is part of the Extreme Customs non-fiction series that will engage listeners of all ages. What do customs mean in a given culture? This high-interest nonfiction series takes a look at the origins, practices and meaning of body modification (piercing, scarring, even plastic surgery), tattooing, burial rites, food traditions (everything from scorpions to fermented shark meat), and fashions in clothing and hair decoration. The Extreme Customs Series engages listeners of all ages.
