Product description

Review

‘[Naked or Covered] is extremely relevant for today’s world, as it explains the human history from the time humans walked around naked and occasionally painted and ornamented themselves, to the time when they started to cover themselves up, as a symbol of chastity, with religions dictating how one should be clothed. It is a well-researched book that is both, academic and entertaining.’—Free Press Journal --This text refers to the paperback edition.
