Letís Go to the Beach: A History of Sun and Fun by the Sea
Elizabeth Van Steenwyk (au)
From the bathhouses of the ancient Greeks to Venice Beach and Coney Island, this book takes a multifaceted and well-researched look at beaches and their attendant customs. The text explores such historical transformations as the evolution of the waterways from places of commerce to venues of health and recreation, as well as the bathing suitís revealing journey from full-body cover-up to string bikini. Information about environmental concerns (including beach safety and preservation), along with quirky facts and trivia, round out this intriguing volume. With humor and intelligence, and a stunning collection of over 50 photographs, Elizabeth Van Steenwyk offers up an impressive overview of one of the worldís greatest pastimes.
