Fun with the Catalog: A Search for Beauty

Run a catalog search for “beauty” and one of the first hits will be to The Beauty Bias: The Injustice of Appearance in Life and Law, by Stanford Law Professor Deborah L. Rhode. This book explores discrimination against people who do not conform to mainstream notions of beauty, and describes the use of law to protect individuals from discrimination based on their appearance. The book is available on the 4th floor at KF478.R48 2010. You can also read the New York Times book review online.
