This richly illustrated volume examines the idiosyncraticphenomenon of social nudism in mid-20th-century Britain, anisland nation fabled for its lack of sunshine and its reservedsocial attitudes.Structured across three interrelated phases, readers firstencounter the movement at its genesis in the 1920s,when nudism was synonymous with vegetarianism,intellectualism and utopianism. That nascent cultureproliferated in the postwar era, with a widening landscapeof amateur clubs and governing organizations alongsidehigh circulation publications and censorship-challengingphotographers. Finally, Annebella Pollen examines themovement's redefinition as naturism, its cultural battles andits struggle to survive amid shifts in sexual liberation in thepermissive 1960s.Unadorned bodies were the central campaigning tool ofBritish naturism's photographic propaganda. They drewattention to the cause and drove publication sales but theyalso attracted regular public opprobrium. Naturism's shiftingvisual culture thus provides a microcosmic view of Britishmoral, legal and aesthetic transformations in a period of rapidsocial change, revealing evolving perspectives on health andsex, gender and ethnicity, pleasure and power.
