Social Bodies:

The Shaping of Internal and External Worlds 

By Rusti Poulette (Zoë)

Bodies are made of stories and shaped by beliefs, constantly shifting in response to social forces. Narratives and norms mold the musculature, restricting thought, movement, and possibility. In this book, the author traces her own somatic shaping through an engaging mix of memoir, critical theory, scientific insights, and political visioning. With accessibility and elegance, this book shows that the merging of somatic awareness and social awareness is essential for the transformation of internal and external worlds.
