About this product
- DescriptionThe history of death is a vital part of human history, and a study of dying and grief takes us to the heart of any culture. Since the First World War there has been a tendency to privatize death, and to minimize the expression of grief and the rituals of mourning. Pat Jalland explores the nature and scope of this profound cultural shift.
- Author BiographyPat Jalland has been a Professor of History at the Australian National University since 1997. She has published in British women's history, Anglo-Irish history, and the history of death and bereavement in Australia and Britain. Her eight books include The Liberals and Ireland (1980); Women, Marriage, and Politics (1986), winner of the 1987 Western Australian Literary Award for non-fiction; Death in the Victorian Family (1996), winner of the New South Wales Premier's Prize for History, and Changing Ways of Death in 20th Century Australia (2006).
