Death to Dust: What Happens to Dead Bodies?
Galen Press, 1994 - 709 pages
A tome about every conceivable aspect of being dead, as a guide for medical professionals and an aid for people in general to decide what to have done with their bodies. Iserson himself hopes to convince people to donate them to research, but he is not pushy about it. He explores how death is determined, autopsies are done, people are cryonically preserved, heads are shrunk, corpses are transported; and why people rob graves, use coffins, cremate bodies, bury people prematurely, and use corpses in research and training. No gruesome photographs. Available from Galen Press Ltd., PO Box 64400, Tucson, AZ 85728-4400. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
