Death, Society, and Human Experience
The landmark text in death education, providing an interdisciplinary approach to understanding death and the dying process. Using case examples and exercises, students can reflect upon their own experiences with death. I have found no better text on the market that deals as fully and as completely with issues of death as Kastenbaum's Death, Society, and Human Experience. It is organized according to the same structural principles as my own lectures and I find it extremely easy to fit into my style. The presentation is very clear and stimulating for students. I have found the Instructor's Manual as useful in preparing lectures and exams as the over-all text is for students. -Andrew Barclay, Michigan State University, reviewer.
