Author Man Kitwah addresses nudity with fifty art works, including paintings, photography, performance art and sculpture. Based on a clear definition between 'nudity' and 'nakedness', the book opens up a discussion on gender and body. Man describes the process of writing as a discovery of how the concept of body is 're-formed' in philosophy and ideology under the cultural backgrounds of different time and space. 

Including plates of artworks at the beginning of each chapter.
