Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"What I like about this book is its cross-disciplinary approach—scholars in religious studies,
sociology, history, anthropology, and political science as well as in African, Caribbean, Jewish, and Native American studies, examine the religious memorialization of violent acts linked to those sites... I liked this book very much." —Contemporary Sociology
