General - Death, anthropology, ritual, etc

This section lists works that deal with the general anthropology of death in a variety of societies and historical periods. Most of these are not related to Buddhism, but the examination of a phenomenon like death always oscillates between ‘anthropological universals’ and particular aspects of specific cultures, societies and historical periods. The section mostly covers works from the disciplines of Social Anthropology, Sociology, History and Religious Studies and also has an emphasis on theories of ritual.
