In "Butts: A Backstory", Heather Radke, a reporter and essayist, takes readers on a fascinating journey through the historical, cultural, and societal dimensions of buttocks.

Spanning nearly two centuries, Radke explores the evolution of buttocks, their impact on fashion sizing, and the racial dynamics associated with figures like Sarah Bartmann and Jennifer Lopez.

From 19th-century London performance halls to 1980s aerobics studios and contemporary pop culture, the book delves into the multifaceted role of buttocks in shaping perceptions, fashion trends, and societal ideals.

Radke's engaging narrative and exploration of personal and societal connections with this anatomical feature make "Butts: A Backstory" an entertaining and thought-provoking cultural history.
