520    This volume chronicles not only a human corpse's physical 
       state but also its legal and moral status, including what 
       rights, if any, the corpse possesses. The author argues 
       that a corpse maintains a "quasi-human status" granting it
       certain protected rights-both legal and moral. One of a 
       corpse's purported rights is to have its predecessor's 
       disposal choices upheld. This work reviews unconventional 
       ways in which a person can extend a personal legacy via 
       their corpse's role in medical education, scientific 
       research, or tissue transplantation. The author outlines 
       the limits that post-mortem "human dignity" poses upon 
       disposal options, particularly the use of a cadaver or its
       parts in educational or artistic displays. Contemporary 
       illustrations of these complex issues abound
