The book considers public mourning as a lens for analyzing and addressing the problems of contemporary democratic life and politics.How does the way in which a democratic polity mourn its losses shape its political outcomes? How might it shape those outcomes? American Mourning: Tragedy, Democracy, Resilience answers these questions with a critical study of American public mourning.
