Abstract:

"The ways we approach death - as a subject and in our practices - reveal much about our values and how we live. With an increasingly diverse and ageing population, advances in technology and medical care, and the social, economic and environmental challeges facing us, it is important to openly discuss how we plan for death as individuals and as a society. From tangihanga, DIY funerals and new technologies to funeral poverty, this book explores what a good death might mean today and aims to foster honest conversations about death and dying in New Zealand"--Back cover.
