Review:

This book represents a remarkable collection of historical aphorisms. It is a classic that should be read by all serious students of death and dying. Darrell Chase, University of Memphis
Philippe Aries has provided us with an extraordinary historical account of the perception and experience of death and dying. . . . This book . . . demands serious attention. . . . Please read this remarkable book. . . .The book is a magnificent contribution to society. Journal of Religious Gerontology
Aries has once again given us something of which probably no other historian. . . is capable: an absolutely magnificent 1,000-year panorama of an extremely elusive, yet fundamental, human concern. The New Republic
A great work of historical reconstruction...that one immediately recognizes as seminal. Psychology Today
Aries meanders through the long, mazelike corridors of his theme like an insatiable collector, relishing every suggestive find, taking turns at random, and spinning interpretations of everything he sees. . . . A monument to its subject. The Saturday Review
A scholarly study which is very appropriate for junior, senior, and graduate level university students in courses on the sociology and history of death. R. Stephen Schwartz, Winona State University
Clearly a thorough, eclectic study. Vincent Barry, Bakersfield College
A classic in the field of the history of dying and death. Nathan Kollar, St. John Fisher
A gorgeous, amazing book that will give me many hours of education and entertainment. Pat Crane, San Antonio College
An excellent look at death as seen through the ages. Philip G. Patros, South Connecticut State University"
