A significant contribution to memory studies and part of an emergent strand of work on global memory. This book offers important insights on topics relating to memory, globalization, international politics, international relations, Holocaust studies and media and communication studies.

Industry Reviews

'A serious, scholarly and essential intervention into memory studies. Using the lens of globalization, the book clearly shows how memory should be understood dynamically beyond states and nations. A lively and rich range of original work by leading scholars in the field.'

- Dr Anna Reading, London South Bank University, UK
