New in History: Severed

Posted January 17, 2015 | Posted in Adult Services

Severed

Larson begins her story of the fascinating topic of decapitation by offering an explanation as to why this grotesque yet extremely fascinating topic has maintained such novelty over time. Larson maintains it is because the severed head is “simultaneously a person and a thing.”

“From the Western collectors whose demand for shrunken heads spurred massacres to Second World War soldiers who sent the remains of the Japanese home to their girlfriends, from Madame Tussaud modeling the guillotined head of Robespierre to Damien Hirst photographing decapitated heads in city morgues, from grave-robbing phrenologists to skull-obsessed scientists, Larson explores our macabre fixation with severed heads.”–from publisher’s description.
