What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This book makes a significant contribution to memory studies. It offsets the excessive attention paid to trauma and the displacement of memory by looking at how nonviolent struggle and its transmission in cultural memory emphasises questions of human agency, resilience and collective action. These are vital questions and the book addresses them splendidly." - Michael Pickering, Loughborough University, UK
