"A central aim of the book is to inspect the categories deployed in polarized debates about 'markets in body parts'. ... Although Hoeyer's work is perhaps most likely to be referenced in fields such as medical anthropology or bioethics, his study presents fresh analytic approaches backed by empirical detail that may be of interest to those working across the various trajectories of science and technology studies." (Tyler Hnatuk, Metascience, Vol. 24, 2015)"The author aims the book primarily at the community of anthropological, sociological, and science, technology, and society (STS) scholars. The author hopes that philosophical ethicists, economists, and legal scholars also will find it useful for engaging in the discussion of the exchange of human bodily materials from new angles. ... The author's careful deconstructive work is insightful and well researched. The book is likely to have broad interdisciplinary appeal, especially considering the rising appeal of biopolitics in a number of fields." (Devan Stahl, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2013)
