Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195093658, Paperback)

A multidisciplinary work, Memory of the Modern examines stock markets, tango dancers, vagabond murderers, neurology, monument destruction, and colonial policies to document how individuals and institutions shaped memory in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The book studies these diverse "memory-sites" to show how memory and history are fought over, shaped, and put to personal and ideological use.
