Item Description...
In recent years there has been a massive upsurge in academic, professional and lay interest in mortality. This is reflected in academic and professional literature, in the popular media and in the proliferation of professional roles and training courses associated with aspects of death and dying.
Until now the majority of reference material on death and dying has been designed for particular disciplinary audiences and has addressed only specific academic or professional concerns. There has been an urgent need for an authoritative but accessible reference work reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of the field. This Encyclopedia answers that need.
The Encyclopedia of Death and Dying consolidates and contextualizes the disparate research that has been carried out to date. The phenomena of death and dying and its related concepts are explored and explained in depth, from the approaches of varied disciplines and related professions in the arts, social sciences, humanities, medicine and the sciences.
In addition to scholars and students in the field-from anthropologists and sociologists to art and social historians - the Encyclopedia will be of interest to other professionals and practitioners whose work brings them into contact with dying, dead and bereaved people. It will be welcomed as the definitive death and dying reference source, and an essential tool for teaching, research and independent study.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very Interesting  Aug 10, 2002
This is a great book to browse. It is a multinational effort with editors from 5 countries, and contributors from 8 countries. I would go so far as to say it has a UK slant. For example, if you look up "crib death" you are referred to "cot death". Some topics don't mention the USA at all. On the topic of death certificates, there is only information about death certificates in the UK. There are 2 indexes and a bibliography, plus at the end of every topic there are references, and/or suggestions for further reading. There are good quality b&w photos throughout. If you are interested in things like near-death experiences, suicide, undertakers, mourning, afterlife beliefs, grief, the death penalty, etc., this book is for you.
