This book has eight chapters that will review prehistoric times when body butchering was a taboo and had to be done behind closed doors and in stinking graveyards with young surgeons fumbling for knowledge and training among rotting corpses right up until the modern medical education era of 21st century where we have sophisticated multifaceted body donor programs and hi-tech human body storage, preservation, care and use facilities to better serve and train our future doctors and surgeons. You will also get a chance to review the complete and authentic report on the controversial persecuted Falun Gong practitioners of China and how the Chinese market became one of the world’s largest suppliers of unclaimed and unnamed human bodies for anatomical dissection due to lax and ambiguous laws.
