    One thought on “Ghosts: Appearances of the Dead & Cultural Transformation”

    1. The most well-researched, logical approach to the topic hands-down. While never discounting the phenomenon, Finucane certainly makes the reader very aware of how the socio-political framework surrounding these tales often shapes the manner in which these ghosts are perceived from one period to the next. A must-read for anyone seriously interested in the subject.

    2. This was a fun book when it started but bogged down with tons of detail in the Middle Ages. By the time I got through that I found myself not caring. I liked the book and I'll pass it along to a friend who loves this subject but I don't think I'll ever read it again. Again, the Classical World stuff was awesome but the rest suffered from too many examples that dragged the study down like chains around Marley's body ;)
