Confronting Death

Values, Institutions, and Human Mortality

David Wendell Moller

A masterfully written supplementary text for courses on death and dying. Moller powerfully critiques how modern technology and bureaucracy, along with professional doctors, therapists, and funeral directors have come to dehumanize the experience of death for both the dying and their survivors.
