In Death, Mourning, and Burial, an indispensable introduction to the anthropology of death, readers will find a rich selection of some of the finest ethnographic work on this fascinating topic.
Comprised of six sections that mirror the social trajectory of death: conceptualizations of death; death and dying; uncommon death; grief and mourning; mortuary rituals; and remembrance and regeneration
Includes canonical readings as well as recent studies on topics such as organ donation and cannibalism
Designed for anyone concerned with issues of death and dying, as well as: violence, terrorism, war, state terror, organ theft, and mortuary rituals
Serves as a text for anthropology classes, as well as providing a genuinely cross-cultural perspective to all those studying death and dying
"I enjoyed this volume immensely; Robben's due care in compiling it is evident throughout, and I have no doubt that it will become an invaluable collection, particularly for those interested in the anthropology of death, but also for others." (Anthropological Forum)
