Synopsis:

When it comes to the end of a relationship, the loss of a loved one, or even a national tragedy, we are often told we need OC closure.OCO But while some people do find closure for their pain and grief, many more feel closure does not exist and believe the notion only promises false hopes. Sociologist Nancy Berns explores these ideas and their ramifications in her timely book, a"Closure."

Berns uncovers the various interpretations and contradictory meanings of closure. She identifies six types of OC closure talk, OCO revealing closure as a socially constructed conceptOCoa OC new emotion.OCO Berns also explores how closure has been applied widely in popular media and how the idea has been appropriated as a political tool and to sell products and services.

This book explains how the push for closureOCowhether we find it helpful, engaging, or enragingOCois changing our society.

About the Author: Nancy Berns is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Drake University in Des Moines. Her teaching and research interests are in areas of grief, death, violence, justice, and social constructionism. She is the author of Framing the Victim: Domestic Violence, Media and Social Problems.
