Death, Society, and Human Experience
Allyn & Bacon, 2009 - 544 pages
This landmark text on the sociology of death and dying draws on contributions from the social and behavioral sciences as well as the humanities, such as history, religion, philosophy, literature, and the arts, to provide thorough coverage of understanding death and the dying process.
The text focuses on both individual and societal attitudes and how they influence both how and when we die and how we live and deal with the knowledge of death and loss. Robert Kastenbaum is a renowned scholar in the field who developed one of the world's first death education courses and introduced the first text for this market.

Review: Death, Society, and Human ExperienceAvis d'utilisateur - Lynda - Goodreads
A good survey text on death and dying from a cross-cultural perspective. Undergraduate textbook feel. Picked it up second hand as a discard at a university book sale. Never read it end to end, but found it an interesting read to pick up and spend half an hour with from time to time. Consulter l'avis complet
