  • Talking Stonesby Elisabetta Viggiani

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    If memory was simply about past events, public authorities would never put their ever-shrinking budgets at its service.

This book examines how collective memory and material culture are used to support present political... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 88.95

He tells of narrowly avoiding... more...

  • Truth recovery in Northern Irelandby Kirk Simpson

    Manchester University Press 2009; US$ 95.00

    Northern Ireland has entered what is arguably the key phase in its troubled political history – truth recovery and dealing with the legacy of the past – yet the void in knowledge and the lack of academic literature with regard to victims’ rights is particularly striking. This book analyses truth recovery as a fundamental aspect of the... more...
