Contestations of Memory in Southeast Asia

-

Roxana Waterson and Kwok Kian-Woon (eds)

A collection of essays on the myriad possible interpretations of the past, depending on both the nature of the interpreter's relation to the past event and her/his ability and willingness to influence others in incorporating that interpretation in pursuit of a present day agenda. The contributors examine events and their aftermath in Burma, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines and Indonesia. The book is divided into three parts -

  • I - Southeast Asia within the Filed of Memory Studies,
  • II - Nationalisms and the Construction of Destinies and
  • III - Traumatic Memories: Interpretations of Collective and Personal Experience.
  • 300 pages with an index.
