About this book

Memory, Trauma and World Politics focuses on the effect that the memory of traumatic episodes (especially war and genocide) has on shaping contemporary political identities. Theoretically sophisticated and empirically rich, this book is an incisive treatment of the ways in which the study of social memory can inform global politics analysis.

Reviews

'Memory, Trauma and World Politics is a fascinating and long overdue study of memory as a multidisciplinary phenomenon...a theoretically rich and imaginative volume that thoughtfully and convincingly navigates the reader through the multiple ways in which memory is proven to be indispensable for the understanding of modern politics.' - Alla Mirzoyan, Political Studies Review

'This collection, unusually integrated for an edited volume, treats questions of memory and trauma in world politics in a critical, interdisciplinary fashion. The range of conceptual and empirical material offered is both novel and rich, and specialists and students alike will benefit greatly from its scholarship.' - Professor David Campbell, Durham University, UK

'The contributors to Memory, Trauma and World Politics present exciting, innovative work by introducing concepts of social and cultural trauma into the study of national and transnational politics. The volume represents an impressive diversity of methods and opinions and serves as an excellent guide to the field of collective memory and trauma studies.' - Wulf Kansteiner, Assistant Professor, Binghamton University, USA

'In a field filled with time-worn, banal security talk, Duncan Bell's Memory, Trauma and World Politics is a timely and well done shift of emphasis. It deserves wide circulation.' - Michael J. Shapiro, University of Hawai'i, USA

'Duncan Bell is...to be congratulated, not only for assembling a fine selection of innovative and wide-ranging scholars, but for bringing "memory" into the field of international relations.' Dan Stone, Journal of Genocide Research
