Synopsis: In Social Memory and History, a group of anthropologists, sociologists, social linguists, gerontologists, and historians explore the ways in which memory reconstructs the past and constructs the present. A substantial introduction by the editors outlines the key issues in the understanding of social memory: its nature and process, its personal and political implications, the crisis in memory, and the relationship between social and individual memory. Ten cross-cultural case studies―groups ranging from Kiowa songsters, Burgundian farmers, elderly Phildelaphia whites, Chilean political activists, American immigrants to Israel, and Irish working class women―then explore how social memory transmits culture or contests it at the individual, community, and national levels in both tangible and symbolic spheres.

About the Author: Climo is an anthropologist at Michigan State University. Cattell is a research associate in anthropology at The Field Museum, Chicago.
