About the Authors
  • Drawing on material from Europe, America and the Middle East, leading scholars of twentieth century history address the issue of how wars, and the loss of life in wars, have been remembered collectively in the aftermath of conflicts such as the First and Second World Wars, the Spanish Civil War and the Algerian War. However, rather than focus on whole societies or ruling groups alone, this volume adopts a "social agency" approach to highlight the behavior of small groups and individuals who do the work of remembrance.

    • Examines the behaviour of the individuals who engage in acts of remembrance in the aftermath of the First and Second World Wars, the Spanish Civil War, and the Algerian War
    • Material is drawn from Europe, Israel and the United States
    • Essays are by leading scholars of twentieth-century history
