When the "Dead" Rose in Britain. Premature Burial and the Misdiagnosis of Death During the Enlightenment.

SKU: 17432

After giving us a history of Western medicine, especially how death was handled, Salomone then focuses on misdiagnoses of death in 18th century Britain. This is so interesting. She did research to find out how often it really happened. So we have statistics now. And then we get some folklore and how this premature burial nightmare inspired authors like Coleridge, Byron, and Stoker (vampires!). Sleep well tonight, readers. McFarland & Company, Inc. 2022.
