Its topics range from the medieval concept of the 'odour of sanctity' to the aroma-therapies of South America, and from olfactory stereotypes of gender and ethnicity in the modern West to the role of smell in postmodernity. Aroma will make essential reading for students of cultural studies, history, anthropology and sociology.Hide synopsis
