"This book gathers together a set of critical discussions on the connection between bodies and the politics that bring them into visibility. For just as there has been a demographic explosion of 'real' human bodies (now thought to be over 5 billion), we have witnessed in the closing decades of the century a proliferation of media and academic representations of the true nature, rights, privileges and proper management of such bodies."
