Death and identityUser Review - Book Verdict
Death, bereavement, and related social and ethical issues are the focus of this revised book of essays (Wiley, 1965. 1st ed; Robert J. Brady, 1976, 2d ed.) by contributors from various disciplines. Sixteen scholarly articles are arranged in four sections, each with its own introductory essay. The sections address perspectives on death (sociological theory and methodological approaches), grief and the process of mourning, bereavement and the process of death, and public policies and private decisions (bioethical issues relating to terminal illness, euthanasia, and the treatment of AIDS). Studies on death by suicide, war, and violence are omitted, and while some cross-cultural works are briefly reviewed, the perspectives are primarily North American. Most appropriate as a supplementary reader in college courses, this book is recommended for academic libraries.-- Lucille Boone, San Jose P.L., Cal.
