Summary

Volume 2: Death and Bereavement in the Americas Death and Bereavement Around the World examines national cultures. The contributors explore unique Canadian views about dying, bereavement, and euthanasia; the realities of dying and grieving in the United States, noting changes that have occurred since September 11, 2001; and black American attitudes and behaviors. The celebration of the ""Day of the Dead"" is used to interpret Meso-American views of death - that death does not have the final word. Other contributors show how the indigenous beliefs of Jamaica mix with Christianity and with the social crises in that country, and discuss similar themes about in Panama, Colombia, and Brazil, where a strong hospice and bereavement care movement is tempering traditional attitudes.
