    An historical and cross-cultural survey of customs relating to mourning for and burying the dead. The book shows us that though Western society does not like to confront death as an inevitable occurrence, there have been and still are groups in society who embrace death, who see it as a continuation of life in both a spiritual and physical manifestation. It is this amazing diversity of attitudes and thus customs that lends the book is fascination.
