This beautifully illustrated exhibition catalogue, bilingual in Malay and English, takes the reader on a tour of coffins and death rituals principally of Malaysia, but also of some neighbouring countries as well. The diversity of customs and beliefs of different communities is amply illustrated by the photographs and accompanying text. The book not only covers practices surrounding the disposal of the deceased in the 21st century, but throughout Malaysia's history. The 181 pages include a bibliography.
