What People are Saying About This

Laurie Clune

Northcott and Wilson have created an exceptional resource for anyone interested in death and dying. They take readers on an enlightening journey that presents dying and death 'not simply as a biological event, [but] a social and cultural phenomenon.' Set within the Canadian context, readers travel through the historical, demographic, religious, economic, and cultural terrain that shapes contemporary notions of dying and death.
