About This Item

314pp, blue cloth boards w/gilt and white lettering on spine. As new condition with Good dustjacket in Brodart clear cover. Black ink marks on dj spine near bottom (see photo) and some wear on dj front cover corners and spine edges. Ernest Becker (September 27, 1924 – March 6, 1974) was an American cultural anthropologist. This book was awarded the 1974 Pulitzer Prize for non-fiction (posthumously). From the dj flap: "Man is the only creature who must pass a lifetime with the fear of death haunting even his most sun-filled days. The Denial of Death is an original exploration of the concept that man's innate fear of death is a principal source of his activity. Professor Becker shows how mankind tries to transcend death in culturally standardized ways--through heroism, narcissism, religion, and even neurosis." Scarce first printing of hardcover; copy is in unread condition.
