"Wils, de Bont, and Au have compiled an exemplary, highly coherent text with analysis that is relevant and insightful but which demands careful reading."


"This is a successful and thought-provoking collection, relying on recent historiography, and extensively illustrated--including several color plates."

--Journal of the History of Medicine and Allied Sciences

"Bodies Beyond Borders brought us a lot of case studies that deepened our understanding of how anatomical objects can gain meanings and how they are imbued with new knowledge.... Maybe most fundamentally, this leads to a rethinking of existing hierarchies: between colony and metropolis, between scientific and public anatomies as well as between the different media of anatomy."
