Editorial Reviews

'This is an extremely timely and significant book that tackles a growing area of media and memory studies, namely mediated public memory and its relationships to the politics of justice. The book has an international line up of authors who have provided insightful and original material from around the world. Public Memory, Public Media, and the Politics of Justice brings to our attention the difficult and important question of whether there should be an international human right to memory and what this would mean for the politics of justice.' - Anna Reading, University of Western Sydney, Australia
