Episodes in Human DissectionBook - 2005
"Human Remains tells the scandalous story of how medical men obtained the corpses upon which they worked before anatomy was regulated in Australia and Britain. Moving back and forth between Britain and the island penal colony of Tasmania, the book examines an era when convicted murderers received the double sentence of both death and dissection. The poor who died in hospital were routinely turned over to the surgeons for study, and men traded in human remains, including those of Aboriginal people."
