Anatomy museums around the world showcase preserved corpses in service of education and medical advancement, but they are little-known and have been largely hidden from the public eye. Elizabeth Hallam here investigates the anatomy museum and how it reveals the fascination and fears that surround the dead body in Western societies. Hallam explores the history of these museums and how they operate in the current cultural environment. Their regulated access increasingly clashes with evolving public mores toward the exposed body, as demonstrated by the international popularity of the Body Worlds exhibition. The book examines such related topics as artistic works that employ the images of dead bodies and the larger ongoing debate over the disposal of corpses. Issues such as aesthetics and science, organ and body donations, and the dead body in Western religion and ritual are also discussed here in fascinating depth. The Anatomy Museum unearths a strange and compelling cultural history that investigates the ideas of preservation, human rituals of death, and the spaces that our bodies occupy in this life and beyond.

Oxbow says: Charlotte Pearson's thesis explores ways of linking volcanic eruptions with dating methods that provide accurate and reliable results. Arguing that tree rings hold important chronological information of environmental chemistry she examines the potential of tree ring chemistry for the interpretation of volcanic episodes. The methodology used, Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry, is described and then applied to a series of pilot studies on different wood types from different environments and different eruptions, including some of known date. Finally two case studies from Sweden and Turkey demonstrate the practical implications of this method on modern wood and archaeological samples respectively.

The Anatomy of Suicide

There is an established belief that suicidal feelings resemble a volcanic eruption
in which there is an upwelling of self - hatred that cannot be contained , and
eventually spews forth in a paroxysm of wild behavior that leads to death .

The Anatomy of Suicide applies the interactional view of human behavior to the problem of suicide. The interactional view holds that the behavior of person A controls the behavior of person B, and vice versa. When a person threatens to kill himself or herself, this threat is intended to force another person in a relationship to change. When a person commits suicide, it signifies that the attempt to force the other person to change has failed. When a threat is carried out, it is because he or she believes that the prospect of change on the part of the other is zero. Suicide is the symbolic punishment of one person by another. Shame and guilt are the force-fields in this punitive process. After a suicidal death, at least one survivor will be blamed for it and made to live with its consequences. Into this volatile situation that is fueled by the most primitive and negative of human emotions, comes the therapist - determined to save a life. This kind of pathology is not the same as the kind a therapist normally encounters, and special interventions will be needed to prevent the suicidal act. This book spells out those methods, step by step and in full detail. By means of these strategies, the therapist can stitch together a relationship that has come apart at the seams and which, if not repaired, may have deadly consequences. Because suicide is an interpersonal event, there is good reason to believe that social sanctions will evolve to eradicate it largely from the human condition. Preventing suicide will eventually become an intrinsic achievement of social control.

View: 831

Northrop Frye's Anatomy of Criticism (1957) is widely regarded as a masterpiece of literary theory. The product of years of reading and reflection, the book's value extends far beyond its impact on criticism as a whole; ultimately, it must be viewed as a synoptic defense of liberal learning by one of the twentieth century's most distinguished critics. In this, the twenty-third volume of the Collected Works, editor Robert D. Denham presents the notebooks to the Anatomy, blue-prints, as it were, for Frye's comprehensive account of literary conventions. Composed from the late 1940s to 1956, the notebooks document the struggle Frye underwent to provide a structure for his work. This involved incorporating previously published essays and developing new material that would maintain the continuity of his argument. This fully annotated volume contains seventeen holograph notebooks, each illuminating some aspect of the grand structure that eventually emerged. Altogether, the notebooks offer an intimate picture of Frye's working process and a renewed appreciation for his magisterial accomplishment.

This is the first book in English reviewing and updating the geology of the whole Apennines, one of the recent most uplifted mountains in the world. The Apennines are the place from which Steno (1669) first stated the principles of geology. The Apennines also represent amongst others, the finding/testing sites of processes and products like volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, olistostromes and mélanges (argille scagliose), salinity crisis, geothermal fluids, thrust-top basins, and turbidites (first represented in a famous Leonardo's painting). As such, the Apennines are a testing and learning ground readily accessible and rich of any type of field data. A growing literature is available most of which is not published in widely available journals. The objective of the book is to provide a synthesis of current data and ideas on the Apennines, for the most part simply written and suitable for an international audience. However, sufficient details and in-depth analyses of the various complex settings have been presented to make this material useful to professional scholars and to students of senior university courses.
