Description:

From the 1890s to the 1930s, a growing number of Germans began to scrutinize and discipline their bodies in a utopian search for perfect health and beauty. Hue demonstrates why so many men and women were drawn to these life reform movements and examines their tremendous impact on German society and medicine.
