Memory, Trauma and World Politics focuses on the effect that the memory of traumatic episodes, and especially war and genocide, has on shaping contemporary political identities. The interdisciplinary team of contributors employ a variety of theoretical perspectives to explore a diverse range of cases from around the world. Theoretically sophisticated and empirically rich Memory, Trauma and World Politics is an incisive treatment of the ways in which the study of social memory can inform the analysis of global politics.
