Reburying the Past: The Effects of Repatriation and Reburial on Scientific Inquiry

Front Cover
Nova Science Publishers, 2008 - Social Science - 137 pages
In this book, the author puts forth what one can learn from the study of human remains, how human remains have been obtained, the ethical dilemmas surrounding working with human remains, and the legal and political complexities of repatriation and reburial. The author intends to introduce readers to a fascinating realm of science rarely covered in the media, as opposed to the more popular fields of anthropology (e.g. forensics, archaeology, paleoanthropology).
