Ethnographic and non-ethnographic approaches to suicide and self-harming are explored in this volume. With contributions from authors with research, teaching and practical experience in the field of suicide, usually seen as a solution, a response to the collapse of hopes, plans and expectations and a complex death phenomenon surrounded by fear and taboo, this volume attempts to add to little empirical research on suicide and self-harm as the fastest-growing behavioural problem amongst teenagers and adolescents. It is a must-read book for anyone with an interest in the field.
