The Last Great Necessity: Cemeteries in American Historyby David Charles Sloane
The Last Great Necessity is a quite wonderful, and often surprising, portrait of American popular culture in action. As David Charles Sloane traces the history of modern cemeteries he meets all the ambivalences and coping strategies Americans have used when they have been forced by nature to confront the meanings of their lives. - From Sam Bass Warner, Jr., Boston University.
