"A bellwether book--an intelligent and highly original study of seventeenth-century attitudes toward death. The book rests upon a strong command of social science literature and is written with style and grace."--David Hackett Fischer, The New Republic
"Stannard skillfully weaves diverse rich sources into this interdisciplinary study of death--a common human concern. His study of the Puritan way of death sets the tone for all the following eras of American culture."--Mary Pope, Westmar College
