Reviewed: TLS 4 May 2018. Description: Throughout history, women (and men) have applied make-up to enhance, alter, conceal and even to disguise their appearance. Also, to a greater or lesser degree over time, cosmetics have been used as a visible marker of social status, gender, wealth, and well-being. A closer look at the world of make-up gives us not only a mirror reflecting day-to-day life in the past, but also an indicator of the culture and politics of earlier periods in history. (publ.)
Reviewed: PW 27 May 2019 p. 81. Description: Does racism have a rational basis in science? In this book, Gavin Evans tackles head-on the debate that has been raging on internet message boards and in academic journals.
