Western Attitudes toward Death from the Middle Ages to the Present
Philippe Aries

Chandeliers made of human bones? Dancing and gambling in cemeteries? This classic history of Western attitudes toward death uncovers amazing and morbid facts, providing the context for our present attitudes regarding death as something shameful and forbidden. An eye-opening look at past funereal rituals and how they changed into today's also-strange practices.
