Julie Saeger Nierenberg and I are seeking contributors for our next book which will focus on death, dying, and end of life, but from religious, cultural, and ethnic perspectives.
The focus will be funeral planning, end of life planning, mourning and grief rituals, burial rituals. Are the topics of death and dying taboo? Do you plan in advance or wait until someone has died?
There are many religions, cultures, and ethnicities in the world and as much as possible we would like to include these perspectives in the book to be a comprehensive guide/information/resource book.
A list is provided below for one to browse if interested in participating. The list is not comprehensive and if we missed a culture, ethnicity, or religion please feel free to contact us and tell us!
If you are interested in providing a perspective please contact us to discuss further.
Buddhist- (we have 1 person for this)

2nd Generation- We have 2 contributors for this
Country-oriented Culture (i.e.- Greek, Italy, Spain) – we have Poland and Ireland
Ethnic (i.e.- Cornish, British, Ice Lander, Norwegian)
We also have a sociological perspective and a behavioral perspective.
