Anorexia Nervosa: A Late modern Mind Game

  • Katie Miles

Abstract

Anthony Giddens begins his public lectures by rhetorically asking: ‘What do the following have in common? Mad cow disease, the troubles of Lloyds Insurance, the Nick Leeson affair [at Barings Bank], genetically modified crops, global warming, the notion that red wine is good for you and anxieties about declining sperm counts?’ (Garland, 2003: 48).
