Hayslip and Peveto compare the findings from the landmark 1970s Kalish and Reynolds’ Death and Ethnicity Study to their own present study and examine the impact of cultural change on death attitudes.
Focusing on African-American, Asian-American, and Hispanic-American subpopulations with Caucasians treated as a comparison group, the authors explore to what extent what we knew 30 years ago holds up to the present. Detailed comparisons are made between the results of the earlier Kalish-Reynolds study and the authors' own recent findings. Several broad findings include: the shift toward more interest in being informed of one's own terminal prognosis, a more personal approach to funerals and mourning observances, and a greater focus on family and relationships.
This book is must reading for researchers, educators, and students interested in death-related studies.
