The Last Dance: Encountering Death and Dying was written by Lynne Ann DeSpelder and Albert Lee Strickland using a scholarly and intellectual manner that emphasizes the emotional, social, and existential outlook on death and dying. Recognized as a leader in research and theory on this subject, this book recognizes that death and dying can be a stressful experience not just for the dying, but for their loved ones and their caregivers. The Last Dance: Encountering Death and Dying covers the different attitudes toward death, learning about death, and the historical and cultural perspectives on death. Society and mortality, health care, and decisions and issues encountered during the end of one's life are also discussed in thought-provoking chapters that encourage students to view death and dying in different perspectives. Authors Lynne Ann DeSpelder and Albert Lee Strickland also discuss controversial topics like suicide, the afterlife, and body disposition, introducing students to the ideas, theories, and traditions affecting these issues. This 9th edition (ISBN 9780073532011) was published by The McGraw-Hill Companies It devotes individual section to historical perspectives, cross-cultural outlooks, and attitudes on matters like experiencing loss and funerals. A chapter on facing death discusses living with life-threatening illnesses and is peppered with examples that readers can relate to. The final chapter is an encouraging take on the path ahead, inspiring readers to make the best social and personal choices when faced with the demise of a loved one. The book is an insightful source on philosophical ideas about bereavement, too, provoking the reader to think and reflect on where they stand on the matter. The inspiring epilogue by David Gordon forces learners to reevaluate how they deal with loss.
