How Nations Remember

A Narrative Approach

James V. Wertsch

  • Features a new conceptualization of national memory and national narratives
  • Draws on ideas from psychology, anthropology, history, literary studies, and sociology to examine national memory
  • Includes information from interviews with leading U.S. diplomats and provides a demonstration of how powerful the habits of national memory are even for professional diplomats
