8 Scopus citations


ABSTRACT: A review of the literature on death‐related attitudes and behavior of Mexican Americans is presented. Special focus is given to the 1976 study of Kalish and Reynolds which concludes that Mexican Americans are more accepting of death than Anglos and other ethnic groups. Some of the study's findings are found to suggest that the opposite may be true. An alternative interpretation of the findings is given along with suggestions for future research. 1981 The American Association for Suicidology
