Through a number of studies by the leading experts in the field, ranging from the construction of memorials through to film and personal testimonies, the complex identities of war memories and their social, cultural and political significances are thoroughly discussed. War and Memory in the Twentieth Century explores differing ways in which memories of conflicts are constructed from a multitude of perspectives and representations, including: * the written and spoken word * cinematic and film images * photography * monuments and memorials * museums * rituals and public celebrationThe book also discusses how memories of war differ between nations and individuals, and between proximity and distance in time.
