Reviews

"This is groundbreaking work that provides one of the most thorough, sophisticated and challenging overviews of the area to date. Memory studies has been waiting for some time for the book that will provide a comprehensive account of its origins, development and current state: this is that book. This will be a pivotal reference point for researchers for some time to come." - Steven Brown, University of Leicester, UK
