After Death: How People Around the World Map
the Journey After We Die
Sukie Miller, Suzanne Lipsett
Mixing contemporary case studies drawn from her own psychotherapy practice with cultural data gathered by the Institute for the Study of the Afterdeath is Miller's recipe for an inspirational discussion of what happens after we die. From an analysis of the institute's database of beliefs from cultures comfortable with the idea of death, Miller constructs an map of the "afterdeath," giving readers a face to go with death, rather than leaving them to stare into amorphous nothingness. After Death isn't a comprehensive tour book to the other side, but it is the beginning of an important conversation that most people avoid, as well as a handle for grasping this final mystery we all have to face at some point in our lives.
