Summary
  • " ... Here is a whole complex of commercial operations that result in funerals whose expense, display and mumbo jumbo are unrelated to any Christian or Jewish tradition and virtually unheard of in any other country today. And there is precise information on what is being done to lower the cost and raise the dignity of burial in the United States."
