Description

Body Trade exposes myths surrounding the trade in heads, cannibalism, captive white women, the display of indigenous people in fairs and circuses, the stolen generations, the 'comfort' women and the making of the exotic/erotic body. This is a lively and intriguiung comtribution to the study of the postcolonial body.

Reviews

"Both camps should welcome this compendium of essays that takes as its focus the notion of the subjugated, captive body, a central contruct in recent debates in feminist theory, postcolonial theory, psychoanalysis, and theories of narrativity.Body Trade is the first book to present theories of the body in relation to the colonial histories of Australia and the Pacific. The Contemporary Pacific Fall, 2003."
