View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This work takes a look at how different cultures around the world have handled death and given it its meaning. Some cultures, for example, Ancient Egypt, virtually bankrupted themselves to deal with the death of a single person; others simply pull down the roof on the corpse and walk away. The book shows how much of even the most exotic practices and themes can be relevant to all.
