Death by Sarah Levete

This book looks at how death is marked in many different ways by different religions and secular cultures. It looks at the ceremonies of Sikhs and Hindus who cremate the bodies of the deceased, and the Christians and Jewish burials. Find out why Muslims are buried facing Makkah, their holy city, and why some Buddhists are given a sky burial in which their body is left exposed to the elements. The Journey of Life series looks at the rites of birth, coming of age, marriage and death, and how religions and cultures celebrate them. It raises topical issues surrounding these stages and how they are marked by different religions.
