If there is one thing that is beyond the reach of others, it is our body in particular, and our person in general. Our legal and political tradition is such that we have the right to deny others access to our person and body, even though doing so would harm those who need personal services from us, or body parts. But are these rights as watertight as they seem? Cécile Fabre's controversial and original book teases out the unexplored implications that arguments for distributive justice have for the rights we have over ourselves, by looking at topical issues such as good Samaritanism, organ confiscation, organ sales, prostitution, and surrogate motherhood.
