For communities who have been the target of political violence, the damaging after-effects can haunt what remains of their families, their communities, and the societies in which they live. Terrain of Memory tells the story of the Japanese Canadian elders who built a memorial in New Denver, British Columbia, to transform a site of political violence into a space for remembrance. The book shows how collectively excavating painful memories can contribute to building relations across social and intergenerational divides. Those seeking a deeper understanding of the potential of memorial projects in transforming the damaging effects of human rights abuses should read this compelling account of community building and social justice.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Terrain of Memory is a powerful contribution to cultural studies and memory work...employing an approach that scrutinizes with exacting honesty her moments of crisis, blockages, and breakthroughs, McAllister unfolds a scholarly activist praxis that is ethical, inventive, inimitable, and suffused with dramatic emotional struggle.

-- Glenn Deer * University of Toronto Quarterly, Vol 81, No 3 *

The novelty of the subject, distinctive methodological approach, engaging voice, and sophisticated analysis makes Terrain of Memory a worthwhile selection for public history classes seeking to model how to understand both past and present meanings of monuments and memorials, though the more analyti-cal sections may be more appropriate for advanced rather than introductory.

-- Gail Dubrow * The Public Historian, Vol 34, No 4 *
