Death in the New World"Seeman's achievement is significant. . . . Death in the New World is refreshingly broad in sweep, blending insights drawn from anthropology, archaeology, and religious and military history. It is also an imaginative work, in the complimentary sense of the term, as Seeman cheerfully, and with erudition, fills in gaps where the written or archaeological record falls silent. If the subject of history is nearly always the lives and deeds of the now deceased, Erik Seeman shows that the disposal of their mortal remains was a vitally important, if not especially uplifting, part of the story."–Times Literary Supplement
