Revival of Death by Tony Walter
Book DescriptionTalking about death is now fashionable, but how should we talk? Who should we listen to - priests, doctors, cousellors, or ourselves? Has psychology replaced religion in telling us how to die? This provocative book takes a sociological look at the revival of interest in death, focusing on the hospice movement and bereavement counselling. It will be required reading for anyone interested in the sociology of death and caring for the dying, the dead or bereaved.

On Bereavement, Paperback (October 1999)
Should the bond with the dead be continued or broken? What is clear is that the grieving individual is not left in a social vacuum but has to struggle with expectations from self, family, friends, professionals and academic theorists. This book applies sociological insights to one of the most personal of human situations.
Mourning for Diana, Paperback (July 1999)
The unexpected death of Diana, Princess of Wales, in Paris on 31 August 1997 led to a period of mourning that took the world by surprise. Does all this mark a shift in the culture of mourning, in the position of the monarchy, in the role of emotion in British culture?
