In seven beautifully written essays, Robert Brym analyzes the social causes of death. Using topics such as hip-hop culture, Hurricane Katrina, and the motivations of suicide bombers, Dr. Brym reveals the powerful social forces that help to determine who lives and who dies and demonstrates the promise of a well-informed sociological understanding of the world. All essays found in the previous edition have been updated and a new chapter on gender risk, reflective of the physical vulnerability of women around the world, has been added. This is a great companion for any Sociology course!
