The Politics of Regret: On Collective Memory and Historical Responsibility

£30.00

Product description

229 pages including index. Clean covers with a few very small scratches and an indent to the rear cover. A few small marks to the side of the block. The spine is uncreased. Pages are crisp, clean and free of any markings. The book is tightly bound.

'Despite the avalanche of interest in the concept of memory, few scholars pause long enough to be clear about what they mean when they use that term. The Politics of Regret is a notable exception. Olick wants to understand memory in postwar Germany, and in particular, the politics of regret that shapes Germany's attempt to come to terms with its past. What makes Olick's work a triumph is his reasoned and particularly clear notion of what constitutes collective memory. With complete mastery, he moves through a vast literature, articulating the many ways scholars have theorised about collective memory, and then applying his understanding of the phenomenon to postwar Germany. One does not need to be a specialist to understand what drives Olick's interest in putting memory at the centre of his discussion of regret or to appreciate the depth of his arguments. For the social scientist or psychologist interested in collective memory or postwar Germany, Olick offers a great introduction. For the specialist, he brings new insight into old and troubling problems.' - William Hirst, Department of Psychology, new School for Social Research (Information taken from rear cover)
