The first part of the text addresses how attitudes toward death have changed over time; how Americans think about death; dying and near-death experiences; and mourning. In Part Two, the author reviews literature on death and dying from a lifespan perspective. The last section deals with caring for the terminally ill and those in mourning, as well as preparing for our own death and dying. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
