Shrill, beefy, drilled – hard bodies populate pop culture and science
books alike. The essays in this volume trace the flexing muscles of the
hard body in various disciplines and spatio-temporal contexts: from the
medieval wooer in panty hose to the soldier in a bombsuit, from sculpted
marble bodies to the treacherous images of German Terrormädels, from 19th
century self-improvement manuals to 21st century technoporn, from Ballets
Russes to Charlie’s Angels, from Afro-Brazilian male sleeping beauties to
the black female war machine.
