This book is a series of essays which examine the forms and meaning of nakedness, nudity (not the same thing), hygiene, and filth in a variety of different cultures. This is not at all a reflection of the quality of the book; I'm sure it's fine, although I am not really a qualified judge.

A magnificent volume! It offers brand new perspectives on body politics and identity or subjectivity formation in the post-colonial world." ―Dorothy Ko, Barnard College

While there is widespread interest in dress and hygiene as vehicles of cultural, moral, and political value, little scholarly attention has been paid to cross-cultural understandings of dirt and undress, despite their equally important role in the fashioning of identity and difference. The essays in this absorbing and thought-provoking collection contribute new insights into the neglected topics of bodily treatments and transgressions. In detailed ethnographic studies from around the world, the contributors recast assumptions about filth and nakedness, exploring how various forms of transgression associated with the body’s surface are drawn up into relations of power and inequality. They demonstrate imaginatively how body surfaces are powerfully mobilized in the making and unmaking of moral worlds.
