Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. 2000. xiii, 324 pp. Although much has been published on the social history of death, this is the first book to give a comprehensive account of attitudes toward the dead--above all the placing of the dead, in physical, spiritual and social terms--in order to reveal the social and religious outlook of past societies. The contributions range widely geographically, from Scotland to Transylvania, and address a spectrum of themes: attitudes toward the corpse, patterns of burial, forms of commemoration, the treatment of dead infants, the nature of the afterlife, and ghosts.KEYWORDS: DEATH HISTORY RITUAL DYING BURIAL SOCIOLOGY ANTHROPOLOGY LATE MEDIEVAL EARLY MODERN EUROPE EUROPEAN Condition Notes: Ink name to top page ridge and front wrapper verso.
