Realms of Memory: Conflicts and divisions

Front Cover
Pierre Nora, Lawrence D. Kritzman
Columbia University Press, 1996 - France - 651 pages
This monumental work examines how and why events and figures become a part of a people's collective memory, how rewriting history can forge new paradigms of cultural identity, and how the meaning attached to an event can become as significant as the event itself. --from publisher description.
