Written by a key founder in the field of loss and trauma, this book takes a broad perspective. It reviews theory and research on a sampling of loss and trauma phenomena that include losses due to the death of close others, divorce and dissolution, losses due to disease processes and injuries, losses due to unemployment and homelessness, war and violence, and the Holocaust and genocide. The book also discusses relevant therapy approaches and emphasizes a story-telling approach to coping with major loss. Focusing on many of the most challenging types of human loss and trauma, the book contains scores of stories of people confronting stress and of the courage displayed by so many in the face of profound loss in their personal lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The author has a particular perspective of loss and its consequences that is compelling and already has resulted in a substantial literature. . . . The reputation of the author is a strength that few, if any, social scientists can match . . . . His systematic investigation of loss from a variety of perspectives and in several modes (empirical and literary) bring a breadth of inquiry that has not been addressed in other volumes on the subject."

-- Scotty Hargrove

"The breadth of the treatment of loss and trauma is a major strength. To bring together the research on loss and trauma not limited to specific categories and place it in various theoretical contexts makes a valuable contribution to the literature."

-- Alban Wheeler
