Illuminating and incredibly useful. The reader could have used further samples of and commentary on Walter Benjamin's thinking on memory, a better selection from Maurice Halbwachs, and something from Paul Ricouer would have been great (Svetlana Boym should be in here as well, for that matter), but overall I benefited enormously from the diverse and well-introduced selections.

Quite serious book about memory studies.
From old theories like Plato, Aristotle, Cicero up to...Pierre Nora, Maurice Halbwachs, Dominick LaCapra etc.
