This edited book builds on recent scholarship on the history of suicide by broadening the scope of the countries examined & by bridging research on the history of suicide in early modern Europe with more contemporary debates. Some twelve national contexts are examined from a variety of academic perspectives – historical, criminological, anthropological, & sociological.
