Why is it that, 100,000 years ago, our ancestors started removing hair from their faces and bodies, using stone tweezers and shells? Why did gays adopt the beard as a sign of liberation in the 1970s? And why is everyone wearing beards again today, from Taliban to hipsters, bankers to fashion models? This book is a journey through time, ideologies, and changing styles, and asks the perennial question: What makes a man a man?
These are questions Kevin Clarke explores in his groundbreaking cultural history book Beards: An Unshaved History.
In addition to his view on the clones of the 1970s and their recent return, there are interviews and facts about beards as well as photographs showing how beautiful a man’s beard can be.
The ultimate guide to the history of male facial hair. In English and German!
