Abstract


Death research is a growing field, producing an increasing number of conferences and publications, of which this volume is one. Dying, Assisted Death and Mourning is a book which aims to enhance understandings of the human experience of death. Its approach to this task is to present nine chapters discussing different aspects of death and dying, written by authors from different disciplines who work in different countries. A key question to be asked of all such texts is whether the book adds to our understanding of issues concerned with death and dying, and this review is written from a perspective which addresses this question.
