“This new book brings together a distinguished group of Latin American experts, historians and sociologists either based in Latin America or with sound field experience. … This overall remarkable volume is highly recommended and will be vital to scholars and students interested in thick descriptions of national memory struggles in Latin America. … This edited volume will be of particular interest to readers seeking a deeper understanding of the diverse political groups competing over memory struggles.” (Nina Schneider, Hispanic American Historical Review, Vol. 97 (4), November, 2017)
