Editorial Reviews


"One of the most successful aspects of the collection is the continued focus on the complexities and ambiguities of memory. If memories vibrate internationally, then itis our job as practitioners and scholars of memory to keep mapping--in both local and global senses--the ways that slavery is represented, contested, complicated, understood, ignored, and commemorated in the public space. Politics of Memory is a wonderful beginning to this shamefully overdue project." Chris Lloyd [H-Memory, H-Net Reviews, May 2013]

"Collectively, we are only just beginning to reflect critically on public representations of race slavery. Better late than never. This lively anthology from a new generation of commentators helps us peer into Pandora’s Box with fresh eyes. Politics of Memory is distinctive for the rich diversity of the authors and for its wide geographical sweep."Peter H. Wood, Professor Emeritus, Duke University and author of Near Andersonville: Winslow Homer’s Civil War

"While there has been much work on re-discovering the historical accounts of slavery, this book is an important addition to scholarship that analyses the reasons for this - the call by descendants of slaves and those with collective memory of slavery for their histories to rank in the national and global story of slavery. Politics of Memory is an excellent account of this." - Stephen Gapps, Historical Dialogues

The articles included in this book are helpful for my ongoing research. I just read some of them and it's enough to satisfy my expectations. For this reason I rate this publilcation as a very good one and I recommend it to my colleagues from academic field which are concerned about the public policies of museums.
