Synopsis:

"Ariès traces Western man's attitudes toward mortality from the early medieval conception of death as the familiar collective destiny of the human race to the modern tendency, so pronounced in industrial societies, to hide death as if it were an embarrassing family secret." -- Newsweek

About the Author: Philip Ariés was a social historian whose books Centuries of Childhood and At the Hour of our Death won great acclaim when first published in France, England and the United States.
