Stephen Prothero (au). This fascinating book considers the interplay of cremation & public health & the centrality of the immortality of the soul to cremationists. Author Stephen Prothero is Assoc. Prof. of Religion at Boston Univ. His book is at once an exploration of the changing meaning of religious rituals, a witty piece of reporting on the machinations of the death industry, & a very serious piece of scholarship on the origins & popularization of a cultural practice. “ An engrossing look at a largely ignored subject. Prothero’s style is energetic & lively. As a historian, he is thorough & conscientious. As a writer, he spins a good yarn.” Illustrations.
