Kurzbeschreibung

1. This book looks to citizens of the Greek island of Chios and how they reshape memories of a traumatic past to form new ways of coping. Author Nicolas Argenti's writing style is incredibly fluid and engaging, and in each chapter he focuses on the stories of particular local people.

2. As Europe struggles with financial and immigration crises which will shape the political future of the EU, memory and trauma studies are becoming an increasingly pertinent way of showing how anthropological work can offer relevant and insightful ways of coping with this change.

3. Argenti is a well-regarded mid-career academic who has spent the past twenty years working on slavery and trauma studies in Cameroon. This shift to Greek studies comes out of earning a prestigious two-year grant to conduct fieldwork in Chios.
