Summary
Until we fall ill, most of us take our extraordinarily complicated collection of flesh, bones and fluids entirely for granted. But from ancient body art to plastic surgery, from early anatomists to conceptual artists, grave-robbers to bionic athletes, our changing attitudes to the human body tell us more about ourselves than almost any other subject in human history. Blending history, science, art, literature and the everyday, Hugh Aldersey-Williams investigates this most marvellous and mysterious of creations
