Overview

Dying is a social as well as physiological phenomenon. Each society characterizes and, consequently, treats death and dying in its own individual ways—ways that differ markedly. These particular patterns of death and dying engender modal cultural responses, and such institutionalized behavior has familiar, economical, educational, religious, and political implications.

The Handbook of Death and Dying takes stock of the vast literature in the field of thanatology, arranging and synthesizing what has been an unwieldy body of knowledge into a concise, yet comprehensive reference work. This two-volume handbook will provide direction and momentum to the study of death-related behavior for many years to come.

"More than 100 scholars contributed to this carefully researched, well-organized, informative, and multi-disciplinary source on death studies. Volume 1, "The Presence of Death," examines the cultural, historical, and societal frameworks of death, such as the universal fear of death, spirituality and varioius religions, the legal definition of death, suicide, and capital punishment. Volume 2, "The Response to Death," covers such topics as rites and ceremonies, grief and bereavement, and legal matters after death."--"The Top 20 Reference Titles of the Year," American Libraries, May 2004.

E-Streams

Reference & User Services Quarterly
This is a singular reference tool . . . essential for academic libraries.
Mark L. Shores
"Sage's two-volume Handbook of Death & Dying, a 2003 RUSA Best Reference, has a place in most reference collections, but it is almost erroneous to call it a handbook. Its scholarly essays are comprehensive and integrate individual concepts. And, like those in any encyclopedia, they have conclusion sections and further reading lists, so it makes sense to keep it in reference. What's more, resources on this topic are hard to come by."

Ursula Ellis
Sage's Handbook of Death and Dying gathers over 100 essays on thanatological topics by sociologists, anthropologists, psychologists, theologists, and other authorities. Volume One, "The Presence of Death," discusses death denial and other psychological reactions to mortality and the dead; the perceived meanings of different types of death, such as accidental deaths, infant deaths, and suicides; and the place of the dying in society, including the institutions of hospitals and hospices. Volume Two, "The Response to Death," covers funerals and memorialization, disposition of remains, grieving, and legal aspects and artistic interpretations of death. The volume concludes with the editors' projections about future trends related to death, including: the American death rate may increase nearly 50% by 2060 (from 8.8 per 1000 to 13.2 per 1000); better management of chronic diseases will lead to a longer dying process, and increased death awareness; euthanasia, suicide and cremation will likely gain more acceptance; and novel funeral and memorial arrangements will arise.

Although most of the articles in the Handbook or Death and Dying concern American or Western societies, many describe the behaviors and beliefs of other cultures. Entries average 5-10 pages in length, and are thoughtfully written and thoroughly referenced. Most articles include historical and statistical data. An exhaustive index and biographical sketches of the contributors are helpful features.

Researchers and students in many social sciences and humanities disciplines, the health and legal professions, and mortuary science will find the Handbook of Death and Dying valuable. Lay readers will also appreciate the Handbook's wide-ranging coverage of death-related topics. Librarians may be hesitant to purchase another book on death, however, if they already own Routledge's Encyclopedia of Death and Dying (2001) and/or the Macmillan Encyclopedia of Death and Dying (2002). Sage's handbook has unique content and fewer, more in-depth articles than the other two resources. Recommended for academic, health sciences, and large public libraries.
