Artistic Impressions is the first history of figure skating to uncover its striking transformation from gentlemanly art to 'girls' sport. Mary Louise Adams examines skating's evolving gender identity as represented on the ice and in the media, showing how ideas about sport, gender, and sexuality have combined to limit the forms of physical expression available to men.
