Editorial Reviews

Review

"Park's book will undoubtedly prove to be an important contribution to the history of anatomy. For the first time, it extensively discusses the history of anatomy from the viewpoint of the corpse and, because of its particular focus on women's bodies, it will radically change the way we think about the (male) history of the anatomized body." Nature



Park's meticulously documented book is medical historiography at its best.... [Park] has shed light on a notion--'the secrets of women'--that should have long ago been recognized as deserving far more attention than has been paid to it.

(Sherwin B. Nuland The New Republic)
