About the Authors
  • The reconstruction of society after conflict is complex and multifaceted. This book investigates this theme as it relates to cultural heritage through a number of case studies relating to European wars since 1864. The case studies show in detail how buildings, landscapes, and monuments become important agents in postconflict reconstruction, as well as how their meanings change and how they become sites of competition over historical narratives and claims. Looking at iconic and lesser-known sites, this book connects broad theoretical discussions of reconstruction and memorialization to specific physical places, and in the process it traces shifts in their meanings over time. This book identifies common threads and investigates their wider implications. It explores the relationship between cultural heritage and international conflict, paying close attention to the long aftermaths of acts of destruction and reconstruction and making important contributions through the use of new empirical evidence and critical theory.

    • Takes a completely original approach to studying the impact of conflict on cultural heritage sites
    • Breaks new ground in terms of analysing the role of cultural heritage in post-conflict scenarios
    • Includes new studies of iconic sites (Dresden and Guernica) and lesser-known ones (a park in Tuzla and the Carabanchel Prison in Madrid)
