Book Description: "Doughty – eine vertrauenswürdige Begleiterin durch die Welt des Todes – bringt uns zum Lachen." Washington Post Der New-York-Times-Bestseller endlich auf Deutsch! Fasziniert von unserer Angst vor dem Tod, zieht es die Bestatterin Caitlin Doughty in die Welt. Um zu erkunden, was wir von anderen Kulturen über Tod und Trauer lernen können, besucht sie in Indonesien einen Mann, der mit dem mumifizierten Körper seines Großvaters zusammenlebt. Verfolgt in Japan eine Zeremonie, bei der Angehörige die Knochen des Verstorbenen mit Stäbchen aus der Verbrennungsasche lesen. Und geht in Mexiko dem "Tag der Toten" auf den Grund. Augenzwinkernd stellt sie Alternativen wie die Öko-Bestattung vor. Und hinterfragt, ob unsere westlichen Riten Raum zur angemessenen Trauer lassen. Ein außergewöhnliches Buch darüber, wie unterschiedlich mit der Sterblichkeit umgegangen werden kann. Und ein Plädoyer dafür, dem Tod wieder mit mehr Würde zu begegnen.

Book Description: "Diamond Head, Hawaii, 1941. Pvt. Robert E. Lee Prewitt is a champion welterweight and a fine bugler. But when he refuses to join the company''s boxing team, he gets "the treatment" that may break him or kill him. First Sgt. Milton Anthony Warden knows how to soldier better than almost anyone, yet he''s risking his career to have an affair with the commanding officer''s wife. Both Warden and Prewitt are bound by a common bond: the Army is their heart and blood . . .and, possibly, their death. In this magnificent but brutal classic of a soldier''s life, James Jones portrays the courage, violence and passions of men and women who live by unspoken codes and with unutterable despair. . .in the most important American novel to come out of World War II, a masterpiece that captures as no ther the honor and savagery of men."--Publisher's website.

Book Description: 'I'll never understand the fucking Army.' Prew won't conform. He could have been the best boxer and the best bugler in his division, but he chooses the life of a straight soldier in Hawaii under the fierce tutelage of Sergeant Milt Warden. When he refuses to box for his company for mysterious reasons, he is given 'The Treatment', a relentless campaign of physical and mental abuse. Meanwhile, Warden wages his own campaign against authority by seducing the Captain's wife Karen - just because he can. Both men are bound to the Army, even though it may destroy them. Published here in its uncensored, original version, From Here to Eternity is a raw, electrifying account of the soldier's life in the months leading up to Pearl Harbor-of men who are trained to fight the enemy, but cannot resist fighting each other.

Book Description: As a practising mortician, Caitlin Doughty has long been fascinated by our pervasive terror of dead bodies. In From Here to Eternity she sets out in search of cultures unburdened by such fears. With curiosity and morbid humour, Doughty introduces us to inspiring death-care innovators, participates in powerful death practices almost entirely unknown in the West and explores new spaces for mourning - including a futuristic glowing-Buddha columbarium in Japan, a candlelit Mexican cemetery, and America's only open-air pyre. In doing so she expands our sense of what it means to treat the dead with 'dignity' and reveals unexpected possibilities for our own death rituals.

Book Description: All of humanity lives with the certainty of death. In this world we do not live forever. But what happens afterward? Is there something beyond the grave? How should we react to the loss of loved ones, whether through an untimely accident or old age? With one foot in the world of theological reflection and the other in the untidy nature of daily life and of spirituality in action, Dr. Bruce Epperly embraces hope while recognizing fear, adventure even in lives touched by regret, and confidence in the face of uncertainty to help us explore the possibilities a loving God has placed before us. We can grieve our loss while looking forward with joy. We can acknowledge what we don't know, while expecting more than we are able to imagine. If you've ever wondered what happens next, this is the book for you.

Book Description: Nach seinem auch als Film weltberühmt gewordenen Erstling ›Verdammt in alle Ewigkeit‹ und dem Folgeband ›Insel der Verdammten‹ beschließt James Jones mit diesem Roman seine große Trilogie über den Zweiten Weltkrieg. Die Helden kommen zurück. Jones erzählt die Geschichte von vier Männern, Angehörigen einer Infanteriekompanie, die mit der ersten großen Welle der Verwundeten vom Kriegsschauplatz im Südpazifik auf einem Lazarettschiff zurücktransportiert werden. Dabei zeichnet er ein nuancenreiches Porträt der Psyche der heimkehrenden Verwundeten, ihrer inneren Zerrissenheit, ihrer paradoxen Schuldgefühle, ihrer totalen Entfremdung von denen, »die nicht da draußen waren«.
