The Last Dance: Encountering Death and Dying

by

The Last Dance: Encountering Death and Dying provides a comprehensive, up to date, and readable introduction to the study of death and dying. It directs attention to the evolving understanding of death and dying in today's culturally diverse environment. In a straightforward, conversational style, with an extensively illustrated format, The Last Dance provides a solid grounding in theory and research as well as in methods for applying what is learned to readers' own circumstances, both personal and professional. No other textbook so successfully combines the research and theories of such diverse disciplines as anthropology, art, ethics, health science, literature, philosophy, psychology, public policy, religion, and sociology. The tenth edition of The Last Dance includes new coverage of key topics yet retains the focus, writing, and pedagogy instructors have come to expect from the best-selling text in death studies.

Wonderful reference book

by Carla W on Oct 9, 2010

This was my textbook in college and the updated version is even more useful. After practicing for 20+ years, I still use it! More

This book is boring

by hcssw on Oct 22, 2009

I had to buy this for a class on death and dying (for social work) it's kind of useless, just a very generic text that doesn't do much to prompt discussion or teach. Wouldn't recommend it... More

Interesting Book

by Educado on Aug 14, 2008

Had to read this book for a course entitled Death and Terminal Illness. It gave a lot of insight regarding death, rituals and practices. It also focused on copying mechanisms for family, friends and hospital staff. More
