Europe-Asia Studies

"The conceptualisation of the volume allows the drawing of parallels between post-war Germany and a variety of countries with a non-democratic past or an authoritarian present, such as Cuba. The model of working through the past is a key theme here: based on its experience with both its Nazi and communist pasts, Germany represents an ‘imperfect but incredibly important model for reckoning with the demons of the twentieth century’. The edited volume brings together prominent scholars of history, political science, international relations, conflict resolution and transitional justice studies. Because of the high number of interdisciplinary contributions covering a very wide geographical scope, this edited volume represents a set of case studies that are a valuable source for those interested in the ways the societies facing transition address their recent pasts."
