Zombies, vampires and mummies are frequent stars of American horror films. But what does their cinematic omnipresence and audiences’ hunger for such films tell us about American views of death? Here, Outi Hakola investigates the ways in which American living-dead films have addressed death through different narrative and rhetorical solutions during the twentieth century. She focuses on films from the 1930s, including Dracula, The Mummy and White Zombie, films of the 1950s and 1960s such as Night of the Living Dead and The Return of Dracula, as well as more recent fare like Bram Stoker’s Dracula, The Mummy and Resident Evil.

I regard this work as an important resource, one-of-a-kind in its genre, and a refreshing wellspring of pragmatic wisdom." -Andrew Weil, M.D., best-selling author of Spontaneous Healing, Healthy Aging, and Fast Food, Good Food "A great book . . . an important work by two amazing teachers . . . a kind of a 'Jewish Book of the Dead, ' like the Egyptian and Tibetan 'Book of the Dead' . . . It blends the mystical with the pragmatic . . . a guiding lamp illuminating our path at every moment." -David Carson, co-author of the best-selling Medicine Cards and Crossing into Medicine Country "Maron and Winkler take the inexplicable, give it meaning, and return it again to delicious mystery . . .

And dying." -Anna Redsand

The uncertainty of ones life and the inevitability of death is a dilemma that has tormented the human mind in all ages. One way of resolving the conundrum has been to imagine, if not firmly believe, that the individual self is immortal and deathless, notwithstanding the fact that the physical body must perish. If nothing, it weans one away from the fear of death towards an earnest hope in a blissful afterlife. Living in Death is a scholarly critique on the death poetry of Emily Dickinson and T. S. Eliot. By deftly comparing their styles, diction, and motifs, Dr. T. D. Peter unravels the beauty of contemplating and courting the compelling presence of death as an unshakeable ontological reality. The author looks through the mirror of the death poetry of two signature poets of the nineteenth and twentieth centuriesthe former, an inimitable and indwelling poetic genius who defies classification and transcends time and trends; the latter, a trail-blazing and celebrated scion of modern classical poetry who impresses with his erudition and edification, imagism, and symbolism. He finds more by way of contrast than similarity in their strikingly opposite life lines and, no less, to their varying allegiance to faith and reason, religion and spirituality.

The soul of man is bedevilled with the fear of death as he finds himself enclosed in a body of death limiting his carnal understanding to a fate of hopelessness and uncertainty of the judgement beyond death. What a pity! This book provides an escape from his misguided thoughts. Using the experience of scriptures based on Bible references, Living Beyond Sin And Death beams out the light of hope beyond the body of death. That is the radiant light of the expression of God, a verified assurance of promise that cannot fail. For example, the Bible notes that the gift of God is eternal life. Furthermore, it presents Jesus declaring his custody of the keys of hell and death. Why then should a soul be in fear of death if not ignorance? Rather, a soul needs death to grow into his likeness to his Maker and thereabouts return to embrace his God in eternal glory. This is great faith and a worthy fellowship. Get a copy!

The Oxford Handbook of the Archaeology of Death and Burial reviews the current state of mortuary archaeology and its practice, highlighting its often contentious place in the modern socio-politics of archaeology. It contains forty-four chapters which focus on the history of the discipline and its current scientific techniques and methods. Written by leading, international scholars in the field, it derives its examples and case studies from a wide range of time periods, such as the middle palaeolithic to the twentieth century, and geographical areas which include Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia. Combining up-to-date knowledge of relevant archaeological research with critical assessments of the theme and an evaluation of future research trajectories, it draws attention to the social, symbolic, and theoretical aspects of interpreting mortuary archaeology. The volume is well-illustrated with maps, plans, photographs, and illustrations and is ideally suited for students and researchers.

With over twenty original essays from highly-respected scholars such as John Caputo, Daniel Boyarin, Edith Wyschogrod, Tim Beal, and Gil Anidjar, Derrida and Religion will quickly become the locus classicus for those interested in the increasingly vibrant work on religion and deconstruction and postmodernism.

The forms by which a deceased person may be brought to rest are as many as there are causes of death. In most societies the disposal of the corpse is accompanied by some form of celebration or ritual which may range from a simple act of deportment in solitude to the engagement of large masses of people in laborious and creative festivities. In a funerary context the term ritual may be taken to represent a process that incorporates all the actions performed and thoughts expressed in connection with a dying and dead person, from the preparatory pre-death stages to the final deposition of the corpse and the post-mortem stages of grief and commemoration. The contributions presented here are focused not on the examination of different funerary practices, their function and meaning, but on the changes of such rituals _ how and when they occurred and how they may be explained. Based on case studies from a range of geographical regions and from different prehistoric and historical periods, a range of key themes are examined concerning belief and ritual, body and deposition, place, performance and commemoration, exploring a complex web of practices.

This is a continuation regarding the immortality of man from the spiritual realms, stories concerning the lives of people who lived before passing to the higher side of life. Everyone has a story to tell about the way their lives turned out. Memories are mostly events and entualities that took place in a period of time. Each person has a past that belongs to them as individuals. Everyone would have liked to express parts of their lives before passing over. This book is going to do just that—you could hear voices whispering words to their loved ones, if we could, for a moment, listen or hear what they have to say or what they want to do before being released from their earthly lives. But this appears to be beyond the human mind— unless you are sensitive to receive information. You still may wonder, “Is it me or my imagination playing tricks on me?” The only proof at the moment is when a person consults a medium or clairvoyant who then becomes the mediator between the two spheres—physical and spiritual domains. So you can imagine the information there is roaming around in the ether and the thoughts waiting to be heard. I hope this book may enlighten the reader to search for the true meaning of life beyond the physical boundaries and come to some conclusion that we are immortal beings and that there is no death.
