Drawing from primary research studies in archaeology, historical analysis, literature, and art this interdisciplinary look at the history of child funerary practices and other vehicles of parental mourning is the only book of its kind. The purpose of this work is to investigate the ways in which funerary behaviors and grieving differ between cultures and across time; from prehistory to modern history. Philippe Aries, the French childhood historian, argued that children were rarely mourned upon their deaths as child death was a frequent and expected event, especially in the Middle Ages. This book draws upon archaeological reports, secondary data analysis, and analysis of literature, photography and artwork to refute, and in some cases support, Aries's claim. Organized in two parts, Part One begins with a chapter on the causes of childhood mortality and the steps taken to prevent it, followed by chapters on prehistory, ancient civilizations, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and the early modern and late modern eras. The chapters in Part Two discuss indicators of parental concern at a child's death: naming practices, replacement strategy, baptism, consolation literature, and artwork. Students who focus on the psychological aspects of death, funeral practices, and childhood histories will find this book a useful and comprehensive tool for examining how children have been mourned since prehistory.

"Based on the firsthand experiences of a diverse team of physicians, anthropologists, nutritionists, epidemiologists, physiologists and parasitologists, all working over the last fifteen years in the research laboratory and in the field in both rural and urban impoverished communities in Brazil's vibrant but disparately poor Northeast, the authors of this book synthesize an approach to solving the health crises that challenge us to harness technological advances for the benefit of mankind. They point out the necessity of addressing the health crises of the disadvantaged as the only effective means of controlling the population explosion without violating fundamental human rights. They note the unique opportunities that a focus on health provides for addressing the key issues of development that transcend geographic and ideologic boundaries." "This book will appeal to a wide range of readers concerned with health in developing areas throughout the world. The anthropologist will learn about public health and epidemiology of tropical infectious diseases; the health professional and medical researcher will learn the importance of working in a culturally sensitive manner with existing practitioners and perceptions; and the economist will learn the issues that are key to health in 80 percent of the world's rapidly growing population who lived in the tropical, developing world. The health crises at the edge of development in Brazil's Northeast hold profound lessons for both developed and developing countries as we convulse into the 21st century, trying to bridge technology with a genuine improvement in the human condition around the world."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Historians' task has always been to make sense of the world. In an age of globalisation this task has become even more formidable. In this book some of the world's most prominent historians take stock of the new situation, reflect on its implications and offer brilliant insights into the fascinations of the new field. Two thousand historians met in Oslo, Norway in the year 2000. High on their agenda was the state of global history. Making Sense of Global History presents selected papers dealing with the status and. future of global history, cultural contacts between the continents over the centuries, the manifold construction and division of time, and with the use and misuse of history worldwide. This Commemorative Volume from the 19th International Congress of the Historical Sciences contains 24 papers -- all chosen for their excellence and general appeal.
