MEDIA REVIEWS
"In this day and age where the focus has shifted from our physical selves to 'virtual identities, ' 'cyberspace, ' and the Cartesian world of the brain and the computer, it seems important and urgent to remind ourselves that we are, in the end, creatures of the body."--Laura J. Gurak, author of Body Talk: Rhetoric, Technology, Reproduction
