Summary
"Beyond its ecology, epidemiology, and economics, the very ethos of death has changed. [This book explores] the rituals and language of dying that have developed in the last century, and how modern technology has not only changed the hows, whens, and wheres of death, but the what of death. Delving into the vast body of research on the evolving nature of death, [the book provides] readers with an ... understanding of how death differs from the past, what our ancestors got right, and how trends and events have transformed this most final of human experiences"--
