"One of the most urgent issues facing the world today is how countries shape historical memory in the aftermath of calamity. Decisions made by those in power cast long shadows into the future. Erna Paris takes the reader on a journey through four continents to explore how nations reinvent themselves after cataclysmic events. She seeks out politicians and powerbrokers, as well as men and women living in the aftermath of repression, asking the question: Who gets to decide what actually happened yesterday, then to propagate the tale? How to people live with the consequences? And why is it that many countries cannot lay the past to rest?"--Jacket." ;
