The Puritan Way of Death: A Study in Religion, Culture, and Social Change (Galaxy Books) by David E. Stannard

This is more than a book about Puritans or about death. It is also about family, community, and identity in the modern world. The book is an intelligent and highly original study of 17th-century attitudes toward death, which were profoundly different from those in our own time. Prof. Stannards object is not merely to understand that period but to provide a perspective on the present. He skillfully combines historical research with important hypotheses concerning social change. The book rests upon a strong command of social science literature and is written with grace and style. Illustrations. A richly diverse and highly readable book that skillfully combines historical research with important hypothesis concerning social change.
