The Last Dance: Encountering Death and Dying https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/1259870480.jpeg 11 9781259870484 The Last Dance: Encountering Death and Dying provides a comprehensive, up to date, and readable introduction to the study of death and dying. It directs attention to the evolving understanding of death and dying in today's culturally diverse environment. In a straightforward, conversational style, with an extensively illustrated format, The Last Dance provides a solid grounding in theory and research as well as in methods for applying what is learned to readers' own circumstances, both personal and professional. No other textbook so successfully combines the research and theories of such diverse disciplines as anthropology, art, ethics, health science, literature, philosophy, psychology, public policy, religion, and sociology. The eleventh edition of The Last Dance includes coverage of key topics yet retains the focus, writing, and pedagogy instructors have come to expect from the best-selling text in death studies. Instructors and students can now access their course content through the Connect digital learning platform by purchasing either standalone Connect access or a bundle of print and Connect access.
