In many cultures, physical perfection is a contradiction in terms; the physical--the realm of the body--is, by definition, thought of as imperfect. Yet in Western cultures, the pervasive tradition in depicting human or superhuman perfection has been that of a conscpicuously masculine physique. This fascinating book explores the origins and evolution of this Western ideal. Photos.
