Two new books from University of Chicago Press

The University of Chicago Press has gone a little gruesome this time around, at least in terms of books of potential interest to genealogists:

Michael Kammen's Digging up the Dead: A History of Notable American Reburials

Robert Elder's Last Words of the Executed (organized by era and method of execution).

Unlike Kammen, Elder's work is said to include "both the famous and the forgotten." I have not seen either of these books in person.
