Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mourning and Disaster offers an original and deeply resonant cultural analysis of public mourning. Focusing on the events surrounding the stadium disaster at Hillsborough and the unprecedented global response to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, this book examines powerful articulations of politics and emotion, memory and community embedded not only in public spectacle, but also in the ineffable private losses and acts of memorialisation that can be summoned by distant disaster. This book marks a significant contribution to a burgeoning field of work interested in the psychic and cultural, as well as social and political dimensions of mourning practices." - Dr Deborah Lynn Steinberg, Department of Sociology, University of Warwick, Coventry,UK "Mourning and Disaster takes a fresh and searching look at two familiar instances of public mourning. Through textual analysis of condolence books and his innovative auto-ethnographic method, Brennan give us new insights into the relations of private grief and public remembrance, a key issue for our disaster-stricken times." - Prof. Richard Johnson, Prof. Cultural Studies, Nottingham Trent University. "Brennan writes in the sociology academic space, and does not examine the media studies angle. [...] Alongside the core research, the book is equally valuable as an excellent introduction to the history of sociology and psychology in regard to death and loss, which is technical but accessible for those not from this part of the academy. It also has a useful methodological section that might help those considering undertaking this type of research." - Michael Ashby, Grief Matters, 13:3 (Summer 2010), p.87.
