Well-researched, well-written, accessible, and fascinating, Free and Natural freenudity a wide scholarly and popular readership. American history, Schrank teaches us, can be chronicled on our attitudes toward naked bodies, which reflect the forward march of capitalism more than any sort of radicalism. With appearances from such prominent and diverse figures as the architect Richard Neutra, the polymath Lewis Mumford, and the gynecologist Arnold Kegel, nudism practice clearly touched broad swaths of the American cultural landscape.
This branding promotes a "free and natural" lifestyle to mostly white and middle-class Americans intent on protecting their own bodies—and those of society at large—from overwork, environmental toxins, illness, conformity to body standards, and the hyper-sexualization of the consumer economy. How did the naked body come to be associated with "naturalness," and how has this notion influenced American culture? Free and Natural explores the cultural history of nudity and its impact on ideas about the body and freenudity environment from the early twentieth century to the present.
Sarah Schrank traces the history of nudity, especially public nudity, across the unusual eras and locations where it thrived—including the California desert, Depression-era collectives, and s suburban nudist communities—as well as the more predictable beaches and resorts. She also highlights the many tensions it produced.
For example, the blurry line between wholesome nudity and sexuality became impossible to sustain freenudity confronted by the cultural challenges of the sexual revolution. Many longtime free and natural lifestyle enthusiasts, fatigued by decades of legal battles, retreated to private homes and resorts while the politics of gay rights, sexual liberation, environmentalism, and racial equality of the s inspired a new generation of radical advocates of public nudity.
Free and Natural provides an in-depth of how our bodies have become tethered so closely to modern ideas about nature and identity and yet have been consistently subjected to the excesses of capitalism.Freenudity
