Body Language and Nonverbal Identity, 1860-1914
"Drawing together methods and literature from cultural history and the social sciences, and informed by literature on the history of photography and more sociological sources, Silent History is an engaging and original consideration of important issues in visual representation in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries." Jordan Bear, University of Toronto "Readers looking for a scholarly exploration of how bodies can communicate will find much of interest in Andersson's rigorous study of popular historical poses in England, Sweden and Austria (with forays into southern Germany)."
