The book's central theme is the significance that people ascribe to death, both within and beyond their religious beliefs, and why this should be so. The book provides an in-depth account of the psychology of death and bereavement and, in doing so, places these subjects within the contexts of the major world religions and their associated mourning and funeral customs. The text is highly accessible and includes numerous case histories based on the author's wide experience in the practical care of the dying and bereaved."--BOOK JACKET." ;
