The field of autobiographical memory has made dramatic advances since the first collection of papers in the area was published in 1986. Now, over 25 years on, this book reviews and integrates the many theories, perspectives, and approaches that have evolved over the last decades. A truly eminent collection of editors and contributors appraise the basic neural systems of autobiographical memory; its underlying cognitive structures and retrieval processes; how it develops in infancy and childhood, and then breaks down in aging; its social and cultural aspects; and its relation to personality and the self. Autobiographical memory has demonstrated a strong ability to establish clear empirical generalizations, and has shown its practical relevance by deepening our understanding of several clinical disorders - as well as the induction of false memories in the legal system. It has also become an important topic for brain studies, and helped to enlarge our general understanding of the brain.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This collection of essays on autobiographical memory is superb, presenting both historical perspectives and cutting-edge research. The volume is essential reading for cognitive psychologists and would make a fine set of readings for a seminar on autobiographical memory.' Henry L. Roediger, III, James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor, Washington University, St Louis
'Autobiographical memory is one of the most important topics in contemporary memory research. Berntsen and Rubin have assembled a group of leading investigators to write state-of-the-art chapters that provide valuable insights into where the field stands and where it is headed. This is an indispensable collection that should be read by anyone interested in the nature of human memory.' Daniel L. Schacter, William R. Kenan, Jr, Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of The Seven Sins of Memory
