Summary
Bodies under Siege remains the classic, authoritative book on self-mutilation. Armando Favazza's pioneering work identified a wide range of forces, many of them cultural and societal, that compel or impel people to mutilate themselves. This new edition examines the explosive growth in the incidence of self-injurious behaviors and body modification practices.--[book cover]
