More Description

Cemeteries are open cultural texts, available to be read and appreciated by anyone who takes the time to learn their special language. "Ethnicity and the American Cemetery" explores the manner in which ethnic groups in America have made their cemeteries a most eloquent voice for the expression of values and worldviews.
Contributors examine the material objects found within the cemeteries, as well as the customary practices bound to them. Contributors are from the fields of folklore, cultural history, historical archaeology, landscape architecture, and philosophy. Heavily illustrated, the volume also features an extensive annotated bibliography.
