China is undergoing significant socioeconomic, cultural, and political changes. It offers an opportunity to examine how people develop their new perspective of what constitutes beauty, how they would work on their bodies in order to respond to new expectations and the new socioeconomic environment, and how the socialist state is loosening its grip on ordinary people. This book offers the excitement of considering social transformation in China.(Tai-lok Lui, University of Hong Kong)
