"Bert Hayslip and Cynthia Peveto compare the findings from the landmark 1970s Kalish and Reynolds' Death and Ethnicity Study to their own present study and examine the impact of cultural change on death attitudes. Focusing on African-American, Asian-American, and Hispanic-American subpopulations with Caucasians treated as a comparison group, the authors explore the relation of previous results to the present. Several broad findings include: the shift toward more interest in being informed of one's own terminal prognosis, a more personal approach to funerals and mourning observances, and a greater focus on family and relationships."
