Kastenbaum, Robert


It is over 20 years since the publication of Dr Robert Kastenbaum’s ground breaking work on the psychology of death. Now this pre-eminent authority in the field offers a major rethinking of his pioneering work. Given today’s extended life span, and given that so many of us are now living longer, and more comfortably, with chronic illnesses, the subject of death is one that touches us with increasing power and directness. New to the Third Edition are chapters on how we construct death; death in adolescence and adulthood including discussion on suicide, physician assisted death and regret theory and denial; new approaches to the role of death anxiety, terror management theory, edge theory, and much more.
