Talking about death is now fashionable, but how should we talk? Who should we listen to - priests, doctors, cousellors, or ourselves? Has psychology replaced religion in telling us how to die? This provocative book takes a sociological look at the revival of interest in death, focusing on the hospice movement and bereavement counselling. It will be required reading for anyone interested in the sociology of death and caring for the dying, the dead or bereaved.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."a useful and interesting book...Written with care, insight, and well-referenced, the book takes the reader through issues of dying and how culture influences our attitudes and behavior toward death...an excellent supplement for courses on death and dying."
-"Contemporary Psychology
"Walter has written a provocative, rich book... Anyone who attends closely to Walter's book will be in a better position to respond when a doctor tries to set him straight, or a nurse offers help, "at no cost to you..""
-"Contemporary Sociology
