Smell is fundamental to experience but mired in paradox. Stigmatized as animalistic, it nonetheless feeds a vast fragrance and marketing industry. Considered ephemeral, scents have survived throughout the ages in a number of religious practices. The Smell Culture Reader provides a much-needed overview of what is arguably the most elusive sense. From hygiene to aromatherapy, the fetid to the fragrant, smells are shown to be much more than just an adornment or a nuisance. Addressing this engaging sense in redolent detail, The Smell Culture Reader demonstrates how essential smell is to sexuality, social status, personal identity, and cultural tradition.

A timely exploration of how odor seeps into structural inequality Our sense of smell is a uniquely visceral—and personal—form of experience. As Hsuan L. Hsu points out, smell has long been spurned by Western aesthetics as a lesser sense for its qualities of subjectivity, volatility, and materiality. But it is these very qualities that make olfaction a vital tool for sensing and staging environmental risk and inequality. Unlike the other senses, smell extends across space and reaches into our bodies. Hsu traces how writers, artists, and activists have deployed these embodied, biochemical qualities of smell in their efforts to critique and reshape modernity’s olfactory disparities. The Smell of Risk outlines the many ways that our differentiated atmospheres unevenly distribute environmental risk. Reading everything from nineteenth-century detective fiction and naturalist novels to contemporary performance art and memoir, Hsu takes up modernity’s differentiated atmospheres as a subject worth sniffing out. From the industrial revolution to current-day environmental crises, Hsu uses ecocriticism, geography, and critical race studies to, for example, explore Latinx communities exposed to freeway exhaust and pesticides, Asian diasporic artists’ response to racialized discourse about Asiatic odors, and the devastation settler colonialism has reaped on Indigenous smellscapes. In each instance, Hsu demonstrates the violence that air maintenance, control, and conditioning enacts on the poor and the marginalized. From nineteenth-century miasma theory theory to the synthetic chemicals that pervade twenty-first century air, Hsu takes smell at face value to offer an evocative retelling of urbanization, public health, and environmental violence.

"Touching Evil which encroaches on various other penultimates--violence, betrayal and survival, above all regenerative survival (with something of the hallelujah chorus of Joy to Levine -- 1962), is also a woman's book, though not every woman's book since it is overwhelmingly female. Necessarily since much of it concerns a childbirth, as shared vicariously by Jean Lamb who observes and records the experience of a young woman whom her lover, Loftus, has asked her to keep an eye on. The mother-to-be is Hattie who has a theory of slipping "inside the lives of other people" so that while she is gestating she is identifying, via television and the Eichmann trial, with Hitler's victims. Jean Lamb who is "approaching the losing side of age," whose Fridays with a lover are no longer enough, and whose childlessness is an increasing scourge, is meantime slipping inside of Hattie's experience which ends with the total fusion of Labor Room / Concentration Camp ... All of this has a definitely tactile intimacy and it's entirely subjective whether you respond or recoil."--Kirkus.
