Present Past: Modernity and the Memory Crisis

Since the French Revolution, memory has been the source of an intense disquiet. Fundamental cultural theories have sought to understand it, and have striven to represent its stresses."

In fairness I didn't understand a damn thing in this book... So maybe it was good. I wouldn't know. I did read it cover-to-cover though. Honest.
