Sorrows of a Century: Interpreting Suicide in New Zealand, 1900-2000 (EPUB ebook – 1st edition)

By Weaver, John C.

Focusing on New Zealand's comprehensive and accessible coroners' records, John Weaver analyses some twelve thousand cases to determine the social and cultural factors that contribute to suicide rates. He examines the official investigations into sudden deaths, placing them within... the context of major events and societal changes. This remarkable assessment spans witness statements, suicide notes and medical records to provide new insights on prevention strategies. A powerful and poignant analysis of the motives for suicide, set amidst the challenges of the twentieth century. Co-published with McGill-Queen's University Press.
