Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Developed from an Open University (UK) undergraduate course in health studies titled "Death and Dying," this anthology collects 34 reprinted readings from 1973-2007 (not all are dated). From psychological, sociological, spiritual, and demographic perspectives, the first part focuses on conceptualizations of death. Readings next treat end of life issues in the context of individuals, organizations, and systems, and the relationships between them. Moral/ethical questions are explored regarding palliative care, withdrawal of treatment, and euthanasia. Selections then discuss grief and memorialization (online as well as traditional). Research issues and gaps are also addressed. Making Sense of Death, Dying and Bereavement (Sage, 2008) is the companion volume. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This book draws together a range of both classic and newly commissioned pieces on the multidisciplinary study of death and dying. Organized into five parts, the book begins with a general exploration of the meaning of death, before moving on to consider caring at the end-of-life. Further readings explore the moral and ethical dilemmas in the context of death and dying. The fourth part of the book examines the issue of grief and ritual after death. The final part considers some of the issues that arise when researching the field of death and dying. By drawing together information, reflection, and experience this authoritative text will broaden your understanding of the subject area. The book is designed as a core text for students in nursing, medicine, social work, counseling, and health and social care. It will also be essential reading for all professionals and care givers who come into contact with death and bereavement.
