Professor Sue Black breathes new life into the subject of death. Sue Black confronts death every day. As a Professor of Anatomy and Forensic Anthropology; she focuses on mortal remains in her lab; at burial sites; at scenes of violence; murder and criminal dismemberment; and when investigating mass fatalities due to war; accident or natural disaster.
In All That Remains she reveals the many faces of death she has come to know; using key cases to explore how forensic science has developed; and examining what her life and work has taught her. Do we expect a book about death to be sad? There is tragedy; but there is also humour in stories as gripping as the best crime novel.
Part memoir; part science; part meditation on death; her book is compassionate; surprisingly funny; and it will make you think about death in a new light. I found it invigorating! Heartening and anything but morbid. May some of ebooks not available on your country and only available for those who subscribe and depend to the source of library websites.
