Handbook of the Sociology of Death, Grief, and Bereavement : A Guide to Theory and Practice Paperback / softback
Edited by Gerry R. Cox
The Handbook of the Sociology of Death, Grief, and Bereavement sets issues of death and dying in a broad and holistic social context.
Its three parts explore classical sociology, developments in sociological thought, and the ways that sociological insights can be useful across a broad spectrum of grief-related topics and concerns.
Guidance is given in each chapter to help spur readers to examine other topics in thanatology through a sociological lens.
Scholars, students, and professionals will come away from the handbook with a nuanced understanding of the social context -cultural differences, power relations, the role of social processes and institutions, and various other sociological factors - that shape grief experiences.
