MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book offers an emergent approach to body theory by concentrating on the materiality and 'radical alterity' of the flesh, as opposed to canonical theories of social construction of the body....an excellent contribution to cultural studies and body criticism." - Choice

"The volume continues in the tradition of moving away from essentialisms and makes an important contribution to the ongoing project of thinking through the body." - EJAS

"This is the time of the corpse, the comatose body, the cosmetically enhanced body and the chimera . . .This collection of essays insightfully explores the gendered, the mythological, the medical, the mutated, and the avatar body." - STELARC, Chair in Performance Arts, Brunel University West London and Senior Research Fellow, MARCS, University of Western Sydney

"An amazing collection of essays on locating the body - in art, medicine, culture, and theory - with a serious attempt to engage all our theoretical as well as pragmatic interests as owners and operators of bodies." - Sander L. Gilman, Distinguished Professor of the Liberal Arts and Sciences, Emory University
