Editorial Reviews

"A serious, scholarly and essential intervention into memory studies. Using the lens of globalization, the book clearly shows how memory should be understood dynamically beyond states and nations. A lively and rich range of original work by leading scholars in the field." -- Dr Anna Reading, London South Bank University, UK
