Volume 4: Death and Bereavement in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, concentrates on the consolidation of ancient cultures and modern methods of caring for the dying and grieving.
This is exemplified in the three chapters on Japan, emphasizing traditional beliefs, the history of the death awareness movement, and available palliative care services.
Similar themes are found in the chapters on Korea, China, and Hong Kong. Sections featuring Australia and New Zealand illustrate more fully developed palliative care and bereavement services.
