Cregan has achieved something distinct: an account of the sociology of the body which incorporates both theory and empirical studies, which demonstrates excellent coverage of an ever expanding field, and which is written in an accessible style. Most impressive is the fact that, whilst each entry is well researched and can be read in isolation, Cregan has ensured a coherence which means the book also works as a whole. An intelligent treatment and account of the sociology of the body, which I look forward to incorporating into my teaching
