Product Description

Distinct from most books in the field, this book presents the story of death in its comparative religious context. Whereas many texts focus on psychological questions, sociological case studies, health care systems, medical ethics, the structure of wills, and sundry death issues (e.g., suicide, abortion, the death penalty, and the nuclear shadow), this text focuses primarily on religious attitudes toward dealth, dying and afterlife.
