The Last Dance  April 29, 2011
by


This text does a marvelous job of addressing the socio-cultural aspects of death in America and the world. The chapter on suicide is both helpful and haunting. There are so many excellent illustrations and photographs in this textbook, that it really comes alive for the students. I ordered this rental textbook from ecampus and I'm glad to receive it in time.






The Last Dance: Encountering Death and Dying: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
