Each anthology in the Global Viewpoints series delivers contemporary perspectives from outside of the United States on a featured subject of global significance. Primary sources such as speeches and government documents combine with media sources to provide the comprehensive information students and readers need to think critically about the issue's worldwide implications.

This title explores current issues surrounding death and dying worldwide. Causes of death are examined, including increases in mortality due to AIDS in Africa, drug abuse in Scotland, and suicide in Ireland. Chapters discuss access to palliative end-of-life care and assisted suicide; influences of the world's major religions and their beliefs, traditions and rituals surrounding death; and funeral practices around the world.
