By comparing the findings from the landmark 1970's Kalish and Reynold's "Death and Ethnicity Study" to their own present study, Hayslip and Peveto examine the impact of cultural change on death attitudes. With a focus on African-American, Asian-American, and Hispanic-American subpopulations with Caucasians treated as a comparison group, the authors come to several conclusions, including: the shift towards more interest in being informed of one's own terminal prognosis, a more personal approach to funerals and mourning observances, and a greater focus on family and relationships.
