Death and the Afterlifeby Brian Innes
Human beings have struggled to understand death since the beginning of time. This book, lavishly illustrated with vivid photographs, takes a comprehensive look at one of the fundamental questions of human existence: what is death and what happens to us after we die? Cultures throughout history have developed myths and belief systems to explain the mystery of death and the afterlife, as have religions throughout the world. From the tombs of the pharaohs to Mexico's Day of the Dead, from the visions of Heaven and Hell found in the Bible to Victorian funeral customs, this book takes a fascinating look at our very last journey in life.
Author Biography: Brian Innes is the author of numerous books as well as a member of the Crime Writers' Association and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
