American Way of Death Revisited
Jessica Mitford (au); Robert Gottlieb (fr)
Here is the classic anatomy of America’s funeral practices -- revised & brought up-to-date for a new generation -- by the famous radical aristocrat Jessica Mitford. In the early 60s, her savage & hilarious expose rocked the funeral trade, shocked the public & became a number one bestseller. By the time of her death in 1996, she had almost finished a complete revision of that book, including an update on facts & figures, & new chapters on multinational corporations & on English funerals. With her genius for outrageous & devastating muckraking, she demonstrates that far from being reformed, the American industry is more pernicious than ever. A classic work of investigative journalism & a brilliant piece of satirical writing.
