Description

From dream research and global belief systems to extraordinary occurrences such as near-death and out-of-body experiences, this fascinating study delves into every aspect of death. Taking a scientific and anthropological approach, the reader is introduced to examples of how different cultures deal with death, how types of deaths are handled differently and how belief systems set the tone for grieving. The combination of factual research, personal accounts and the uncanny creates an intriguing overview into the end of a life.
