Dissection on Display: Cadavers, Anatomists and Public Spectacle

I’ve written a review of Christine Quigley’s new book, Dissection on Display: Cadavers, Anatomists and Public Spectacle, over at Morbid Anatomy. If you have more than a passing interest in the history of the study of anatomy, this book is definitely worth a look. Quigley’s earlier work (such as The Corpse: A History) was an inspiration to me, and I’m delighted to have been able to contribute to Morbid Anatomy. (Incidentally, if you know of other books that you’d like to see reviewed there, drop me a line.)
