About the book:

This is a brilliant exploration, from a sociological point of view, of what is still a taboo subject in modern societies: death and dying. In a sustained and gripping argument, the author puts forward a new theory explaining the individual, cultural, and institutional strategies for dealing with human mortality. The author demonstrates that the necessity of human beings to live with the constant awareness of death accounts for crucial aspects of the social organisation of all known societies.
