Synopsis

The first serious academic study of obituaries, this book focuses on how societies remember. Bridget Fowler makes great use of the theories of Pierre Bordieu, arguing that obituaries are one important component in society's collective memory. This book, the first of its kind, will find a place on every serious sociology scholar's bookshelves.

Bridget Fowler is a Professor at the University of Glasgow, specialising in the sociology of culture, Marxist-feminism and social theory. Her previous publications include The Alienated Reader (Harvester Wheatsheaf, 1991), Pierre Bourdieu and Cultural Theory (Sage, 1997), and an edited volume, Reading Bourdieu on Society and Culture (Blackwell, 2000).
