Dying Today New Funerary Rites Publication date : October 1, 1997

In the last few years, funeral rites have begun to undergo major transformations. Funeral directors have noticed a new tendency of their clients to pay in advance for their own funerals and in all places, the home, hospital and cemetary, new, more humane funeral rites are emerging. In this book, psychologists, sociologists, theologians, and funeral directors discuss the new changes to help us understand contemporary funeral procedures.
