Dying with Class

It's out! Yesterday Living with Class: Philosophical Reflections on Identity and Material Culture came off the presses. It's edited by Ron Scapp and Brian Seitz and includes essays by bell hooks, Stanley Aronowitz, Lisa Nell, Henry Giroux and others.

I've got an essay in the book that looks at class, race, religion and hospice use called, "Dying with Class."

You can by it here.
