Synopsis: What are the legacies of genocide and mass violence for individuals and the social worlds in which they live, and what are the local processes of recovery? Genocide and Mass Violence aims to examine, from a cross-cultural perspective, the effects of mass trauma on multiple levels of a group or society and the recovery processes and sources of resilience. How do particular individuals recall the trauma? How do ongoing reconciliation processes and collective representations of the trauma impact the group? How does the trauma persist in "symptoms"? How are the effects of trauma transmitted across generations in memories, rituals, symptoms, and interpersonal processes? What are local healing resources that aid recovery? To address these issues, this book brings into conversation psychological and medical anthropologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and historians. The theoretical implications of the chapters are examined in detail using several analytic frameworks.
Book Description: What are the effects of mass trauma and genocide, and how does recovery occur? How do responses and recovery processes vary across cultural groups and historical periods? Psychological and medical anthropology in particular - which emphasizes taking into account various levels of human experience (brain function, psychology, social experience, collective representations, and sociopolitical process) - has much to say about these questions. Genocide and Mass Violence is a unique volume that examines the effects of genocide and mass violence by scrutinizing the interconnections of personal and social memory, symptoms, and recovery processes.
