Yet again, on the subject of dead bodies . . .

I just saw this, listed in the New Scholarly Books section of the November 19, 2010, issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education:

AFTER WE DIE: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE HUMAN CADAVER by Norman L. Cantor (Georgetown University Press; 372 pages; $26.95).  Examines the physical disposition and legal and moral status of the deceased; argues that the corpse retains a quasi-human status that grants it various "cadaveric rights."
It's listed with the law books.
