This work focuses on what happens after a death has taken place. Drawing on social theory and anthropology, contributors examine responses to death as they occur within the set of cultural, social and historical circumstances which characterize post-war society. Theories of grief - a critical review; is grief an illness?; issues of theory in relation to cultural diversity and the grieving process; four siblings' perspectives on parent death - a family focus; "Naturalizing" death among older adults in residential care; just an old fashioned love song or a harlequin romance?; some experiences of widowhood; discourse into practice - the production of bereavement care; the skills we need. Bereavement counselling and governmentality in England; "You have to get inside the person" or making grief private - image and metaphor in the therapeutic re-construction of bereavement; supporting bereaved children at school; the child death helpline; a place for my child. The evolution of a candle service; changing death rituals; funeral ritual, past and present; forget me not - memorialisation in cemeteries and crematoria; the cemetery - the evidence of continuing bonds; Hindu death and mourning rituals - the impact of geographical mobility; grieving in public; post- disaster rituals.
