The Revival of Death

Synopsis

Talking about death is now fashionable, but how should we talk? Who should we listen to - priests, doctors, counsellors, or ourselves? Has psychology replaced religion in telling us how to die? This provocative book takes a sociological look at the revival of interest in death, focusing on the hospice movement and bereavement counselling. It will be required reading for anyone interested in the sociology of death and caring for the dying, the dead or the bereaved.
