The author draws upon current research, scholarship, and personal experiences, as well as significant historical, philosophical, and literary contributions. Case histories and self-monitoring exercises are included.

From the Back Cover:

This is the landmark book in death education, providing an interdisciplinary approach to understanding death and the dying process.

Draws upon contributions from the humanities as well as the social and behavioral sciences, such as history, religion, philosophy, literature, and the arts. Shows how individual and societal attitudes subtly influence both how and when we die and how we live with the knowledge of death and loss.
