Abstract

abstract:

This review essay locates Haider Warraich's Modern Death: How Medicine Changed the End of Life (2017) in the lineage of books by physician writers who give us distinctive site lines into the veiled topic of human death and dying. A skilled storyteller, Warraich recombines established narratives on mortality and modern medicine and forges new emphases that underscore the socially mediated and negotiated dimensions of contemporary dying practices.
