How teenage girls can combat the world’s definition of self-image through a biblical understanding of who they are If there is a teenage girl who feels comfortable with her body and appearance, the authors have yet to meet her. This book helps explain where that dissatisfaction comes from, from media like MTV, magazines, and advertisements. It then gives girls a healthy biblical perspective on physical appearance, concluding that the only real way for girls to experience lasting acceptance of their bodies is to look at how God has created them and how he intends for them to love others and themselves. Through their own vulnerability and personal stories, the authors help girls realize they are not the only ones who feel so poorly about themselves. This revolutionary book is written more like a conversation than a lecture and presents the topics and the biblical passages about self-image in new and fresh ways.

Mirror, Mirror... examines the hidden truth about good looks. Through extensive research of scholarly studies and popular culture, the authors provide a lively and comprehensive view of what behavioral scientists have learned about the effects of personal appearance. A wealth of illustrations and photographs give visual support to the evidence presented. The book explores the view that people believe good-looking individuals possess almost all the virtues known to humankind; consequently, they treat the good-looking and ugly very differently. Mirror, Mirror reviews the stereotypes held about people with specific characteristics and it explains the impact of height, weight, and attributes such as hair color, eye color and facial hair on the course of social encounters. The authors show that through time these reaction patterns have their effect and that good-looking and unattractive persons come to be different types of people. To show the relative nature of concepts of beauty, the authors also present examples of what other cultures consider attractive.

Identity and Subjectivity in Spanish Women's Poetry (1975-2000)

This book offers detailed studies of eight works of poetry written by Spanish women in the years following the death of Francisco Franco and the evolution of a democratic government. Each chapter, devoted to a single work, shows how each author defines herself as both as a woman and a poet by portraying a female figure in the text of the poem. These figures may vary from well-known historical or literary figures, biblical women, to mythological figures. They can even include self-portraits, biographical moments from the poet's past, and insignificant or unnamed women such as caregivers, fishmongers, social outcasts, and everyday women involved in routine activities. The linguistic interaction between the woman writing and the figure portrayed in the poem sets in motion a fascinating play of similarity and difference through which these poets inscribe themselves as women and writers in the new, democratic Spain. W. Michael Mudrovic is an Associate Professor of Spanish at Skidmore College.

As our first technology for contemplation of the self, the mirror is arguably as important an invention as the wheel and perhaps even more universal. Mirror Mirror is the fascinating story of the mirror's invention, refinement, and use in an astonishing range of human activities-from the bloodthirsty smoking gods of the Toltecs, to the fantastic mirrored rooms wealthy Romans created for their orgies, to the mirror's key role in the use and understanding of light. From Archimedes to Isaac Newton to Max Factor to David Hockney, this is the fascinating tale of one of the most remarkable inventions in human history and its effects on myth, religion, science, manners, and the arts.

Mirrors are fascinating. They reflect everything accurately the things that are in front of them, or do they? Scientists were at one time attempting to create a mirror which showed everything the way the viewer would see it, not the back-to-front reflection we are used to. Quite what that would do to our minds is anyone's guess… Mirrors can be menacing. They can reveal our innermost fears – sometimes showing us those fears in ghastly and horrific forms. Mirrors can speak, according to the fairy tale, giving the viewer what she wanted up to a point, until it no longer became the truth. Mirrors hold many secrets. This anthology reveals some of those secrets and horrors as the talented writers who have allowed me to use their work explore in tales of woe, blood, gore and murder. Here are the real nasties hiding behind the silvered backs of seemingly innocuous mirrors. Look in them at your peril.
