Technologies of the Human Corpse

John Troyer

MIT Press, Massachusetts, 2020. First Edition.

Small tear to the lower rear of the dust jacket; slight soiling to dust jacket. Remainder mark on text block. In very good condition.


A fascinating look into the industries and technologies that have arisen around the management of human bodies. Tied together with a deeply personal narrative, this book covers a huge range from ground, from the “Happy Death” movement of the 70s, to the advent of embalming, into the politics of the HIV/AIDS corpse, Troyer displays a deep and empathetic understanding of that which awaits us all.
