From the clamshell razors and homemade lye depilatories used in colonial America to the diode lasers and prescription pharmaceuticals available today, Americans have used a staggering array of tools to remove hair deemed unsightly, unnatural, or excessive. This is true especially for women and girls; conservative estimates indicate that 99% of American women have tried hair removal, and at least 85% regularly remove hair from their faces, armpits, legs, and bikini lines. How and when does hair become a problem—what makes some growth “excessive”? Who or what separates the necessary from the superfluous? In Plucked, historian Rebecca Herzig addresses these questions about hair removal. She shows how, over time, dominant American beliefs about visible hair changed: where once elective hair removal was considered a “mutilation” practiced primarily by “savage” men, by the turn of the twentieth century, hair-free faces and limbs were expected for women. Visible hair growth—particularly on young, white women—came to be perceived as a sign of political extremism, sexual deviance, or mental illness. By the turn of the twenty-first century, more and more Americans were waxing, threading, shaving, or lasering themselves smooth. Herzig’s extraordinary account also reveals some of the collateral damages of the intensifying pursuit of hair-free skin. Moving beyond the experiences of particular patients or clients, Herzig describes the surprising histories of race, science, industry, and medicine behind today's hair-removing tools. Plucked is an unsettling, gripping, and original tale of the lengths to which Americans will go to remove hair.

Depuis 25 ans, l’Atlas d’anatomie humaine Netter est l’atlas de référence internationale. Le succès de cet ouvrage réside dans la qualité et la beauté du travail du Dr Netter. D’une part, dans la très grande qualité iconographique, scientifique et pédagogique des quelque 900 illustrations et, d’autre part, dans le choix des coupes anatomiques qui rendent compte du point de vue du clinicien. De plus, le choix des couleurs, l’utilisation de la terminologie anatomique internationale, l’illustration par de nombreux clichés d’imagerie moderne (TDM et IRM) ainsi que des commentaires didactiques facilitent la compréhension et la mémorisation de l’anatomie humaine. L’ouvrage est divisé en huit sections, qui font chacune le tour complet d’une grande région anatomique. Cette 6e édition, entièrement révisée, s’enrichit d’une vingtaine de nouvelles planches d’anatomie et d’imagerie et plus de la moitié des planches ont été révisées (légendes, dessins). À la fin de chaque section, un tableau récapitulatif des muscles donne pour chacun d’eux : le détail de son attache proximale et distale, son innervation, ses principales actions, sa vascularisation artérielle ainsi que son appartenance aux groupes musculaires. L’Atlas d’anatomie humaine Netter est l’ouvrage de référence indispensable à tous les étudiants en médecine ; il les accompagnera durant toutes leurs études.

This atlas features outstanding full-color photographs of actual cadaver dissections, with accompanying schematic drawings and diagnostic images. The photographs depict anatomic structures more realistically than illustrations in traditional atlases and show students exactly what they will see in the dissection lab. Chapters are organized by region in order of a typical dissection. Each chapter presents structures both in a systemic manner from deep to surface, and in a regional manner. This edition has sixteen additional pages of clinical images—including CT and MRI—that students can compare with cross-sectional anatomic photographs. Many pictures have been electronically enhanced or rescanned for better contrasts.
