In "Death, Mourning, and Burial", an indispensable introduction to the anthropology of death, readers will find a rich selection of some of the finest ethnographic work on this fascinating topic. This work is comprised of six sections that mirror the social trajectory of death: conceptualizations of death; death and dying; uncommon death; grief and mourning; mortuary rituals; and, remembrance and regeneration. It includes canonical readings as well as recent studies on topics such as organ donation and cannibalism. It is designed for anyone concerned with issues of death and dying, as well as: violence, terrorism, war, state terror, organ theft, and mortuary rituals. It serves as a text for anthropology classes, as well as providing a genuinely cross-cultural perspective to all those studying death and dying.
