The newest book in the Norton/Library of Congress series examines the extent to which burial grounds of all kinds have held a significant place in our culture. The history and development of cemeteries are limned throughout with more than 600 photographs that shed light on the great diversity of burial structures and traditions.

"Fascinating..." -- Plan Philly "[A] stunning visual feast...The book opens with a short essay by Keith Eggener that sets the bar for excellence in this kind of writing: Eggener doesn't lapse into academese, nor does he go into the details of the photography and photographers. He sticks to laying the groundwork for the reader to understand the many pictures that follow...[A] wonderful and insightful selection of photographs." -- Englewood Review of Books "Stately and moving." -- Book News "[A]n entirely worthy edition to the superb collection of visual sourcebooks by the Library of Congress...a rich education on the changing nature of burial space in the United States... [T]akes the study of cemeteries particularly beyond the architectural-historical... Overall, this is an invaluable package." -- The Victorian (UK)
