Summary
"Dying, Death, and Bereavement, Fourth Edition, is a brief but comprehensive survey of research, writings, and professional practices concerned with death and dying. The book is interdisciplinary and eclectic - medical, psychological, religious, philosophical, and artistic. Demographic matters of dying, death, bereavement, and widowhood are all considered, but with an emphasis on psychological aspects. A variety of viewpoints and research findings on topics subsumed under thanatology receive thorough consideration in certain chapters. Questions, activities, and projects at the end of each chapter enhance reflection and personalize the material."--Jacket
