International Yearbook of Oral History and Life Stories is a new series which aims to increase our understanding of the recent past and the changing present. It sets out to present and interpret autobiographical testimony, whether in the form of written autobiography, oral history, or life-story interviews. Edited by an international group of leading scholars, the International Yearbook is genuinely interdisciplinary and intellectually stimulating, with much to offer students in many areas, including history, sociology, literature, psychology, and anthropology. Each issue will form a coherent volume focusing on a single theme. Memory And Totalitarianism explores the remembered experience of individuals living under different totalitarian regimes, and examines the construction of memory in the aftermath of their collapse. Luisa Passerini, Special Editor of this volume, contributes an Introduction which underlines the fundamental importance of the struggle for memory and its meaning.
