"Entertaining - if harrowing." - New York Times Book Review What would happen if you took a swim outside a deep-sea submarine wearing only Speedos? How long could you last if you stood on the surface of the sun? How far could you actually get in digging a hole to China? And Then You're Dead offers serious answers to these horribly interesting questions. Paul Doherty and Cody Cassidy explore the real science behind these and other fantastical scenarios, offering insights into physics, astronomy, anatomy and more along the way. Illustrated with straightforward technical art and leavened by small doses of dry humour, And Then You're Dead is both scientifically informative and gruesomely entertaining.

It has been heralded for its inclusion of pop culture examples that instantly connect with today’s students, and for its presentation of sociological concepts in a fresh, contemporary light. The book features movie reviews in the popular Sociology at the Movies boxes that explore the sociological messages within recent movies such as CRASH, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, SYRIANA, and many others. The authors also draw on the real world with examples from Chris Rock’s stand-up routine, the hip-hop music scene, and the rituals of the Super Bowl, as well as scholarly discussions of topics ranging from race and poverty to religious practices.

A rare entry into the nexus of science and art, this thought-provoking exploration introduces the ongoing research by scientists and artists into the fascinating subject of death and mortality. The unique practices of medical and scientific artists share a desire to piece the world together using the power of representational drawing. Their common belief that to draw is to see seeks to answer the riddles of mortality through the cultivation of their art, and what begins as an exploration of death ultimately becomes a celebration of life. This collection presents an introduction to the front lines of medical and scientific art, elaborating upon the ethos of their movement, and showcasing some of their greatest discoveries.
