Jamie’s Rating    

Gary Laderman, the Goodrich C. White Professor of American Religious History and Cultures at Emory University, takes readers on a behind the scenes tour of the American funeral industry. Anyone who's ever wondered why Americans do funerals the way we do will find Laderman's book both fascinating and informative. He counters the perspectives of muckrakers like Jessica Mitford and gives the industry a chance to speak for itself.
