** Plucked by Rebecca Herzig

I was a little disappointed to see that Plucked: A History of Hair Removal focuses solely on the United States, but the author’s lively coverage of both techniques for hair removal and the cultural forces behind it, is quite enjoyable, and profound at the same time. And I never realized that hair removal is such a large economic force!
