Szabo (Atlanta-Fulton Library System) presents an annotated bibliography of about 2,200 monographs on death and dying. Sources relate to psychological, philosophical, and attitudinal aspects; coping and dealing with caregiving and working in the helping professions; instructional and educational topics for practitioners and primary healthcare providers; cultural differences in bereavement rituals; historical views; pastoral and palliative care; fear of death, immortality, mental health issues, and communication; and grief, mourning, and loss. Other titles relate to legal and financial issues, nursing, parental and sibling loss and grief, hospices, widowhood, and the death of children and adolescents. Titles about death and dying in popular culture and literature, methods of death, and specific ethical, policy, or public issues are only included if they contribute information to areas which are the book's focus. It is aimed at students, researchers, academics, caregivers, healthcare professionals, psychologists, and social workers. Not all entries are annotated.
