Review quote

"This is a rich collection of transnational and interdisciplinary case studies and analyses written by leading scholars in a key field. It should be read for years to come by all those interested in diagnosing and healing the wounds of history."-Ben Kiernan, A.Whitney Griswold Professor of History, founding Director, Genocide Studies Program, Yale University. "The great contribution of this volume is to enlarge the way we think about family dynamics, so that it is something that happens within history, often histories of violence, and across multiple generations. The other great contribution is to look at the way the transmission of trauma across the generations actually works. Doing so reveals the closeness and strength that may be communicated, as well as the pain and alienation. In both respects this volume reflects the ethical turn in psychoanalysis."-C. Fred Alford, Professor of Government and Distinguished Scholar-Teacher, University of Maryland, and author of Trauma and Forgiveness.show more
