Summary
Global Viewpoints: The Culture of Beauty explores ideals of beauty from around the world through a variety of perspectives. The first chapter highlights some definitions and standards of beauty in different parts of the world. Chapter two gives several perspectives on body image -- the way people feel about their own bodies and how they envision the ideal beautiful body, which varies from culture to culture. The third chapter discusses various ways people enhance their bodies, from makeup to plastic surgery, to tattoos and scarification. The final chapter explores the views of several different cultures on fashion and clothing. Taken together, the viewpoints present a vast array of beauty ideals throughout the world. - Introduction
