"This superbly crafted ethnography draws readers deeply into the domain of organ transplantation in Guadalajara, Mexico. Megan Crowley-Matoka lays bare the ubiquitous moral and social consequences, tragic and joyful, associated with kidney transfer from one family member to another, that reverberate for years among extended family members, transplant teams, and society at large. These findings have implications for all forms of medical manipulation involving the procurement and transfer of bodily material among humankind." — Margaret Lock, author of, The Alzheimer Conundrum: Entanglements of Dementia and Aging
"Domesticating Organ Transplant is an insightful, ethnographically rich, and original work that adds to the growing corpus of anthropological scholarship on human organ transfer. Megan Crowley-Matoka's in-depth work with families, firm grounding in bioethics, and ability to interweave key analytical concepts—such as bioavailability, domesticity, blame, and materiality—is compelling. Crowley-Matoka's profound observations and analyses in this beautifully written and heartfelt book took my breath away." — Lesley A. Sharp, author of, The Transplant Imaginary
