Death ultimately, and irreversibly, separates the dead from the living. It is the
definitive "parting of the ways." Where the analogy breaks down, of course, is that
, unlike the brave knight or soldier who goes off to face the enemy alone, a
person who dies, in point of logic, cannot "come through the encounter
unscathed" and be joyfully reunited with those he left behind. Unlike a knight or
soldier in battle, who may hope to see his loved ones again, a person who has
died no longer exists.

Why is death so scary? Maybe it's just the thought of being dead that scary. It's
that lifeless, end of the road feeling. Knowing it's the end of YOUR road, the big
one way, toe tag mania. Ah, to go peacefully in my sleep, to the great beyond like
my grandfather, not screaming like his passengers. Beyond what, a better place?
I already have a happy place I retreat to, is it better than that? What's being dead
as a doornail? Was a doornail ever not dead? Dead wrong, I always thought
wrong ...

Traditionally, as Bazelmans, Fowler and Thomas all note, the body ofthe dead
hasbeen assumedto indexthe single living individual whose remains are
examined. Treatment ofthe dead body by apast society washeld to be analogous
tothe treatment accorded tothat individual in life, and to represent the “fossilized
terminal status” (Peebles 1971:69) of an individual. For this reason, the work of
all authors in this section is of Part 1: Bodies, Selves and Individuals Introduction

... and parts that can only be included in the human comedy if you have a very
charitable heart; you have to practically be Voltaire in order to accord them the
proper decency that they require. Fortunately, I knew Joseph Campbell; and even
though he wasn't an anthropologist, he was married to one. Joseph Campbell
told me that we are all masks that God wears, whatever I might think God is. I
certainly believe that he was right about that, so that makes my amateur
anthropology easier ...

And third, the reason for this inaction is that our entire economic and political
culture remains in thrall to a set of “Dead Ideas” about how a modern economy
should work. This book is about the threat that individuals, companies, and the
country face from the things we think we know, and about the new (and surprising
) ways of thinking destined to replace these Dead Ideas so that America will
continue to prosper. The next decade will bring a collision of forces that threaten
to disrupt ...

But can cadavers be mistreated? in what sense can a dead person, someone
who is no longer with us, be abused? is it the memory others have of that person
that is being defiled? Maybe the human race is demeaned when one of their kind
(even though now dead) is treated in a less than human way. But what is a 'less
than human' way, and what does this mean when thinking about a dead person?
these are not easy questions. Can we expect to provide clear rational answers or

It set me to thinking when Jerry died. It set a lot of us to thinking, even those who
normally don't, and even a few who no longer can. I saw some of my Deadhead
friends who hadn't had a thought in years suddenly entertain one, handling ideas
like those gorillas handled that Samsonite luggage on the old TV commercial (
poor Samson, after Delilah and that haircut, and the jawbone and all those
Philistines, now he's reduced to a proper adjective for ugly plastic luggage, but I
digress1).

Q: Where did the idea for The Road of the Dead come from? A: Like most of my
books, The Road of the Dead developed over time from a number of different
ideas. In this case, I'd written half a book about the two brothers before, but it
hadn't quite worked, so I went off and wrote something else. Then, sometime later
, I was thinking about an idea for a plot that I'd had in mind for a long time, and I
realized that it would be a perfect storyline for the two brothers. Q: Do you have
any brothers ...
