Omtale: Death and Bereavement
A comprehensive account of the psychology of death and bereavement, which places the subject within the contexts of the major world religions and their associated mourning and funeral customs. The book examines the thinking of Freud and Jung, and of modern psychiatrists, and also discusses aspects of death including: bereavement, visions, euthanasia, grief for a pet and suicide. The seconded edition has enabled the contents to be updated and enlarged. There are five new chapters, including one dealing with the scientific assessment of death; another which looks at the psychological insights provided by Shakespeare; whilst a third deals with the beliefs and customs of minority groups - the Bahais, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Quakers, Spiritualists and Seven-day Adventists.
