Summary
"The book is rooted in the past of South America, but its reach is much wider. The analysis and reflections presented here draw on theories of historical and social memory, trauma and testimony, truth and how memory is created through confrontation and struggle." "Cutting across disciplines - history, anthropology, sociology, psychology, and legal anthropology - State Repression and the Struggles for Memory is the best existing introduction to the political uses of memory."--BOOK JACKET
