From our regular book review column.
Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.
The author states that “This book is an account of the psychosocial impact of war in the broadest sense—that of understanding memory not just as individual memory, but also as the ways in which other people, society and culture, and history, all affect how we remember” (p 2). This is an ambitious goal, and the author largely succeeds in laying foundations for it. The book consists of 14 chapters including a historical perspective; current theory concerning posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); memory and history; personal narrative and social discourse; aging, trauma, and memory; and memorialization and commemoration, among others.
