The nonwhite, who were powerless to stop the desecration (Walker 2000). S. and elsewhere seem to have overcome the aversion to dissection, and now it is the middle and upper classes that most commonly donate their bodies to science (Uchino 1983; Garment et al. 2007). The long association of the scientific study of the dead with the criminal element, and probably more importantly with infringement of the rights of the impoverished, continues to cast a negative light on scientific study of the dead as an act of denigration—particularly when the remains being studied relate to a sector of society that has been the target of discrimination.

Waldron, in Chapter 28, “Joint Disease,” assists the reader in understanding the bases of classification of the disease and evaluates efforts to interpret their presence in human skeletal remains. Chapter 29, “Bioarchaeology’s Holy Grail: The Reconstruction of Activity,” by Jurmain, Cardoso, Henderson, and Villotte tackles a “hot” topic in paleopathology: can quantifiable and/or qualifiable changes to bone serve as markers for occupation, activity, or mechanical stress? Clearly, many researchers have argued “Yes”.
