'Sue Black's utterly gripping account of her life & career as a professor of anatomy & forensic anthropology.' (Guardian). A fascinating, critically acclaimed mix of science and meditation on death.
Professor Dame Sue Black is one of the world's leading anatomists
and forensic anthropologists. Until 2018 she was Director of the
Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science at the University
of Dundee. She is now Pro-Vice Chancellor for Public Engagement at
Lancaster University. In 1999 she was the lead anthropologist for
the British Forensic Team's work in the war crimes investigations
in Kosovo. She was one of the first forensic scientists to travel
to Thailand following the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004 to provide
assistance in identifying the dead. Sue is a familiar face in the
media where documentaries have been filmed about her work and she
led the highly successful BBC 2 series - History Cold Case.
Sue was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 2016 Queen's Birthday Honours for services to forensic anthropology.
She is the author of the critically acclaimed Sunday Times bestseller All That Remains.
One might expect [this book] to be a grim read but it absolutely
isn't. I found it invigorating! -- Andrew Marr * BBC Radio 4 'Start
the Week' *
Black's utterly gripping account of her life and career as a professor of anatomy and forensic anthropology manages to be surprisingly life-affirming. As she herself says, it is "as much about life as about death". -- PD Smith * Guardian *
An engrossing memoir ... an affecting mix of the personal and professional. -- Erica Wagner * Financial Times *
A model of how to write about the effect of human evil without losing either objectivity or sensitivity ... Heartening and anything but morbid... Leaves you thinking about what kind of human qualities you value, what kinds of people you actually want to be with. -- Rowan Williams * New Statesman *
For someone whose job is identifying corpses, Sue Black is a cheerful soul ... All That Remains feels like every episode of Silent Witness, pre-fictionalized. Except, you know, really good. -- Helen Rumbelow * The Times *
The product blurb is for the book entitled "All That Remains A Life in Death By Professor Sue Black, but the front cover says 'Confident Coaching'. I'd really like to purchase the book "All That Remains, A Life in Death" By Professor Sue Black but have no interest in "Confident Coaching". I'm wondering which book it is. I don't want to accidentally order the wrong book. - Customer question on 25/01/2020
