Description - Representations of Death by Mary Bradbury
Drawing upon a rare ethnography of mortuary practices in the 1990s, this book takes the reader through the medical, bureaucratic, commercial and ritual aspects of death. Making extensive use of conversations with staff in hospitals, registry offices, funeral rooms and cemeteries, as well as drawing on fieldwork conducted with bereaved women, the book makes a significant contribution to the growing literature in death studies.
