|Review:||"Through an analysis of successive re-formations of the body, this book constructs a wide-ranging account of how the creation and evolution of different patterns of human community are intimately related to the somatic experience of the sacred." "Grounded in classical and contemporary theory, Re-Forming the Body makes a seminal contribution to understanding the relationship between the sacred and profane: the world of religious and moral sentiment and the world of the body. It will be essential reading for graduates, postgraduates and advanced undergraduates in sociology and social theory, the body, religious studies, cultural studies and related areas."--Jacket.
