Product Description

Review

"This is an important book. It will stand as the most informed yet accessible treatment we have of both the individual senses and the relationship among the senses. Howes and Classen offer readers a wholly fresh, compelling, and absorbing account of the ways the senses have worked in a vast variety of social and historical formations." - Mark M. Smith, University of South Carolina, USA

"Howes and Classen have produced a wonderfully lucid and learned account of how we should understand the role of the senses, historically, comparatively and in our own everyday lives. A great pleasure to read." - Michael Bull, University of Sussex, UK
