Synopsis: An analysis of shifting attitudes towards death in Western civilization from the middle ages to the present day.

Review:

"Ariès traces Western man's attitudes toward mortality from the early medieval conception of death as the familiar collective destiny of the human race to the modern tendency, so pronounced in industrial societies, to hide death as if it were an embarrassing family secret."

(Newsweek)

"An astounding story, told with the incisiveness and mastery characteristic of Ariès's work."

(Robert Darnton New York Review of Books)
