Adam's navel : a natural and cultural history of the human form by Michael Sims( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in Chinese and held by 27 libraries worldwide
An informed survey, Adam's Navel is a unique brew of science, history, and storytelling that illuminates our perception, exploitation, and celebration of the human body. Moving from head to toe in twelve chapters, Michael Sims blends cultural history with evolutionary theory to produce a wonderfully original narrative. "No part of the body lacks a story," writes Sims, who analyzes and demystifies the visible parts of the body that make up the whole-our animal form that is also a screen onto which we project our fears and obsessions. He tells of dreadlocks and Achilles' heel, of fingerprints and penis size. He discusses the history of breastfeeding, the allure of navel rings, ancient rules for shaking hands, why nature builds men and women on a female body plan, and how the evolution of our two-legged stance affects childbirth and back pain. Drawing on evolution and the mechanics of human anatomy, along with Shakespeare, mythology, film, and popular culture, Sims creates a marvelous new lens through which to view this body that we inhabit almost unconsciously. Adam's Navel is a field guide to the landscape of ourselves

Father knows less, or, Can I cook my sister? : one dad's quest to answer his son's most baffling questions by Wendell Jamieson( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in Chinese and held by 26 libraries worldwide
New York Times editor Wendell Jamieson's son, Dean, has always had a penchant for odd questions. "Dad," he asked, apropos of nothing, "what would hurt more--getting run over by a car, or getting stung by a jellyfish?" "Dad, why do policemen like donuts?" "What's it feel like to get stabbed?" "Does Mona Lisa wear shoes?" Dad, a newspaperman, decided to seek out answers--and got swept up in the hunt. He spoke to movie directors and ship captains and brain surgeons and stabbing victims and lottery winners and museum curators and politicians and judges and compulsive shoppers and mothers-in-law and magicians. But what began as a lark quickly grew into something larger. Blending a father-son journey with the surprising, sometimes hilarious questions and answers it spawned, this book offers a heartwarming exploration of that childlike curiosity that lives within us all.--From publisher description

Happiness : a history by Darrin M McMahon( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in Chinese and held by 24 libraries worldwide
An intellectual history of man's most elusive yet coveted goal. Today, we think of happiness as a natural right, but people haven't always felt this way. Historian McMahon argues that our modern belief in happiness is a recent development, the product of a revolution in human expectations carried out since the eighteenth century. He investigates that fundamental transformation by synthesizing two thousand years of politics, culture, and thought. In ancient Greek tragedy, happiness was considered a gift of the gods. During the Enlightenment men and women were first introduced to the novel prospect that they could--in fact should--be happy in this life as opposed to the hereafter. This recognition of happiness as a motivating ideal led to its consecration in the Declaration of Independence. McMahon then shows how our modern search continues to generate new forms of pleasure, but also, paradoxically, new forms of pain.--From publisher description
