Human beings have struggled to understand death since the dawn of time and cultures throughout history have developed myths and belief systems to explain the mystery of death and the afterlife. Religions and cults, among others, have sought to place our lives in greater context and prepare humanity for the next step. Some offer hope of an eternal life, some maintain the idea of death and rebirth, while others pose the threat of eternal damnation. Brian Innes explores these concepts while investigating the afterlife as it is envisioned in countries across the world and through the ages. From Mexico's Day of the Dead, Victorian funeral customs, and the Tibetan Book of the Dead, to the tombs of the Pharaohs, cryonics, and the visions of heaven and hell found in the Bible, Death and the Afterlife takes a fascinating look at our very last journey in life -- death.
