The American Way of Death Revisited, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


In the early 1960s this classic work of investigative journalism was a number one bestseller.

The savage and hilarious analysis of America's funeral practices rocked the industry and shocked the public.

This up-dated edition (revised just before the author's death) shows that if anything the industry has become more pernicious than ever in its assault on our practices and wallets. And it's an industry that - alas - sooner or later affects us all.
