This unique new book addresses the rise of death studies as an academic discipline, and serves those who work in the anthropology of death and loss. It gives a perspective on death, with reference to

Maoists politics and violence in Nepal, so will also appeal to scholars of the region, and its Maoists movements.

This work aims to add and contribute to cultural and regional perspective in death studies. There has been little written on death studies in  conflict situations, from a South Asian perspective. Therefore, this book extends the current literature in death and bereavement perspectives beyond western academic exploration. 


Author: Dr. Sujeet Karn is a Senior Fellow at Kathmandu University/Tribhuban University, Nepal.
