Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item


We have learned a great deal about keeping death at bay through medical technology. We are less well informed, however, about how to face death and how to understand or articulate the emotional and spiritual needs of the dying. This book brings together medical experts and authorities in the humanities to reflect on medical, cultural and religious responses to death. The book should help both medical personnel and patients to view death less as an adversary and more as a defining part of life.
