'With great originality and scholarship, Amelia Jones maps out an extraordinary history of body art over the last three decades and embeds it in the theoretical terrain of postmodernism. The result is a wonderful and permissive space in which the viewer/reader can wander, guided not only by her or his own will and desire but also by Jones's brilliant cartography.' Moira Roth, Trefethen Professor of Art History, Mills College - from the back cover
