Summary
    An Anthology of Death, Dying, and the Living offers students a multifaceted, cross-disciplinary, and intellectual exploration of death, what it means to be human, and what it means to truly live. Through a historic and anthropological lens, students read carefully selected articles that address diverse domestic and international events and convene a variety of perspectives in terms of culture and identity as they relate to death, dying, and living.

    The anthology is divided into five distinct sections: Should We Fear Death? To Die is to Have Lived!; Existential Death—Suicide?; Death and the Family; Death and the Self (Grief, Mourning, and Elegies); and Biomedical Death—What Does it Mean to Die with Dignity?. Each section features articles from a variety of sources that draw from the disciplines of anthropology, philosophy, psychology, sociology, biology, politics, government and law, and religious studies. Students experience a holistic and complete examination of various understandings, interpretations, and viewpoints about life, death, and the interplay between the two.

    An accessible, emotional, and thought-provoking collection, An Anthology of Death, Dying, and the Living is well suited for courses that explore death and dying from a sociological, psychological, philosophical, or anthropological perspective.

    Atiba Rougier is a lecturer in the Department of Anthropology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York. He was a hospice volunteer, and his research centers on what it means to die with dignity and the role vigil plays in the bereavement process.
