War Memory and Popular Culture free pdf This collection of essays investigates such diverse vehicles for war commemoration as poems, battlefield tours, souvenirs, books, films, architectural structures, comics, websites, and video games. Drawing on essayists from Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Israel and the United States, this work explores the evolution from traditional to contemporary forms of war commemoration while centering around fundamental question of whether these new forms of memorial are meant to encourage the remembering or forgetting of the experience of war, as well as what implications this process may have for the continuation of the modern nation state.
