In this volume leading academics explore the relationship between the experiences of terror and helplessness that have caused trauma, the ways in which survivors remember and the representation of these memories in the language and form of their life stories.

International case studies include accounts of: the migration journey of Ethiopian Jews to Israel the life stories of Guatemalan war widows violence in South Africa persecution of political prisoners in South Africa and the former Czechoslovakia war in the Malvinas lynching in the Mississippi Flats resistance in Zimbabwes liberation war sexual abuse the Irish troubles The volume reveals the complexity of remembering and forgetting traumatic experiences and shows that survivors are likely to express themselves in stories containing elements which are imaginary, fragmented or disjointed and loaded with symbolism.

Trauma and Life Stories is a ground-breaking work of relevance across the social sciences.- This new perspective on trauma will be of particular importance to researchers in psychology, history, womens studies, anthropology, sociology and cultural studies.
