In Fat is a Feminist Issue, Orbach put slimming, body consciousness and eating disorders firmly at the centre of the political and psychological map of the modern world. This new edition of her 1986 study of anorexia and bulimia extends the issue of women's damaged relationships to self and others by documenting recent changes in attitudes.
