349 Book reviewsGreen J, Green M 1992: Dealing with death, practice and procedures. London: Chapman and Hall. xix + 274pp. £12.95 (PB). ISBN 0 412 36410 7 SAGE Publications, Inc.1992DOI: 10.1177/026921639200600417 Derek Murray St Columba's Hospice, Boswall Road, Edinburgh EHS 3RW, UK This very practical book sets out to provide a guide to the laws controlling, and the customs surrounding, the disposal of the dead. It is aimed at doctors and nurses, but it will certainly be of use to other professions, and to all who may have to give advice and answer questions about death and dying. It takes into account the changing ethnic geography of Great Britain, and recent societal changes regarding death. If the reader wishes to discover information about coroners' courts, and their Scottish equivalent, cremation practices, organ transplantation, exhumation, or the procedures involved in mass disasters, precise and reliable information is here. There is a section on palliative care and last offices, and good instruction on bereavement counselling and support. Perhaps the most innovative section is the last, which deals at some length with most of the religious requirements likely to be found in Britain today. The attitudes of churches and non-Christian faiths
