"Amidst the burgeoning profusion of contemporary writings about memory, this imposing collection now deserves pride of place. From multiple perspectives and diverse disciplines, it offers the very best of access to the complicated ground from which the problems of "history" and "memory" may now be engaged. There is no better guide to be found." -- -Geoff Eley * University of Michigan * An outstanding collection. The topics, themes, and theorists discussed have been selected with a good eye for the current state of play in memory studies, providing an excellent introduction to the discipline. -- -Ross Poole * The New School * A remarkably comprehensive and interdisciplinary compilation of recent thought and scholarship on memory. Provocative, incisive, accessible, and sometimes superb, these essays lead us, like memory itself, from the past to the future of the subject. -- -Michael Lambek * editor of Tense Past: Cultural Essays in Trauma and Memory
and author of The Weight of the Past: Living with History in Madagascar *
