Updated and with a new introduction, the bestselling classic that revolutionised our relationship with food.

THE ORIGINAL ANTI-DIET BOOK IS BACK - in one volume together with its best-selling sequel.

When it was first published, Fat Is A Feminist Issue became an instant classic and it is as relevant today as it was then.

Updated throughout, it includes a frank new introduction by Susie Orbach that brings this book to a new generation of readers whilst offering a current perspective for its original fans. With an increasingly dominant diet industry, costing the consumer millions of pounds each year, Susie Orbach's best-selling classic is as important as ever in helping women to love their own body and face the demands of 21st-century living with confidence.

Reviews

Virtually all feminist debate on body image and beauty imagery owes its existence to Susie Orbach's enduring formulation

Naomi Wolf, bestselling author of The Beauty Myth

Susie Orbach's pioneering work isn't just the first to expose the links between sexual politics and female dieting; it remains the classic work on the subject ... it is more essential than ever that Fat is a Feminist Issue be read by every woman

Susan Faludi, bestselling author of Backlash

[Orbach's] pungent psychoanalytic insights and plain good sense ensure that this is still the sharpest, and best bible for the food junkie
