4.0 out of 5 stars Only book of its kind, April 2 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Modern Mummies: The Preservation of the Human Body in the Twentieth Century (Hardcover)
I read this book while researching a film about mummies. It is, to my knowledge, the only book of its kind. Most think of mummies as belonging exclusively to the ancients--Egyptian, Peruvian, and otherwise--but this book illuminates a continuing need to deny the reality of "dust to dust" in our modern age. Passages on the secular communist icons that have undergone permanent emblaming (Mao, Lenin) and on Summum Corp., a contemporary mummification facility, are very interesting. Highly recommended.
