E book Our reaction to freaks is not a function of some deep seated fear or some energy that they give off it is rather the result of our socialization and of the way our social institutions managed these people s identities Freak shows are not about isolated individualsthey *are about organizations and patterned relationships between them *about organizations and patterned relationships between them us Freak is not a uality that belongs to the person on display It is something that we created a perspective a set of Practices A Social ConstructionFocusing On a social constructionFocusing on eydey of Freak Shows 1840 1940 Bogdan covers the The Happiness Secrets Of Joel Osteen history of the presentation of freaks in conjunction with the circus dime museums carnivals world fairs the amusement industry in general What interested me most about theistory was the transition of freaks from impressive curiosities to diseased dangers to society Freak shows drew large crowds were extremely popular attractions and in many cases freaks settled down into normal communities both at retirement and when on break from the show It wasn t until the early 1900s when doctors claimed freaks as the property of science that people started to find freaks pitiful Science both demystified their abnormalities and changed their uniueness into diseasesThe book is not structured chronologically so information is repeated chapter to chapter the Seashells history the people and the theory Rather than being annoyingly redundant this repetition actually enhanced the reading experience for me I feel like I learned this wayI will leave you with another restatement ofis thesis because I think it is not only an important part of the book but a very true very important statement How we view people who are different An Excellent conceited Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet has less to do with what they are physiologically than with who we are culturally This was an excellent read researched thoroughly and in depth I likeow the author was objective and allowed us to cast our own judgments I m sure for those who felt truly exploited by showing themselves there were just as many or who felt it was a decent way to earn a living and maintain a lifestyle I truly dislike it when people get outraged on the behalf of others There is that saying about taking a walk in their shoe.
