"The editors have selected a thought-provoking set of essays that address many of the most important themes and issues within memory studies and contribute exciting new research and ideas to the field. The Handbook invites productive questions about the nature of memory and the field that studies it, and anyone with an interest in memory will find a great deal to appreciate in this volume. The collection also reminds us of the limits of memory studies as a field and may be helpful in establishing disciplinary and conceptual boundaries around memory as an object of study. For all of these reasons it is a valuable and interesting read and a worthy addition to the growing canon."
