About the Author

Jeffrey K. Olick is Professor of Sociology and History at the University of Virginia. His previous books include "In the House of the Hangman: The Agonies of German Defeat, 1943-1949" (Chicago 2005) and "States of Memory: Continuities, Conflicts, and Transformations in National Retrospection" (Duke 2003).


"Olick's book is imaginative, thorough, and demanding: it sparkles with facts, ideas, concepts, and fascinating historical dynamics. The presentation is powerful and persuasive. While the books offers one of the most interesting and holistic presentations of collective memory, it goes well beyond it - to the complex meanings of modernity."

-- American Journal of Sociology, Vol. 114, No. 3
