"The author has a particular perspective of loss and its consequences that is compelling and already has resulted in a substantial literature. . . . The reputation of the author is a strength that few, if any, social scientists can match . . . . His systematic investigation of loss from a variety of perspectives and in several modes (empirical and literary) bring a breadth of inquiry that has not been addressed in other volumes on the subject."
"The breadth of the treatment of loss and trauma is a major strength. To bring together the research on loss and trauma not limited to specific categories and place it in various theoretical contexts makes a valuable contribution to the literature."
