  • 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
