This book explores how the legacy of violence during the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia is memorialized. Engaging with war, violence and critical heritage studies, the book looks at how the selective production of heritage diminishes opportunities for justice and reconciliation beyond the violence. It should be of particular interest to students and scholars interested in heritage studies, memory, trauma, genocide, dark tourism, and Cambodia.

After Heritage

Critical Perspectives on Heritage from Below

Focusing on the practices and politics of heritage-making at the individual and the local level, this book uses a wide array of international case studies to argue for their potential not only to disrupt but also to complement formal heritage-making in public spaces. Providing a much-needed clarion call to reinsert the individual as well as the transient into more collective heritage processes and practices, this strong contribution to the field of Critical Heritage Studies offers insight into benefits of the ‘heritage from below approach’ for researchers, policy makers and practitioners.

Debating Genocide

This book explores the subject of genocide through key debates and case studies. It analyses the dynamics of genocide – the processes and mechanisms of acts committed with the intention of destroying, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, religious or racial group – in order to shed light upon its origins, characteristics and consequences. Debating Genocide begins with an introduction to the concept of genocide. It then examines the colonial genocides at the end of the 19th- and start of the 20th-centuries; the Armenian Genocide of 1915-16; the Nazi 'Final Solution'; the Nazi genocide of the Gypsies; mass murder in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge; the genocides in the 1990s in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda; and the genocide in Sudan in the early 21st century. It also includes a thematic chapter which covers gender and genocide, as well as issues of memory and memorialisation. Finally, the book considers how genocides end, as well as the questions of resolution and denial, with Lisa Pine examining the debates around prediction and prevention and the R2P (Responsibility to Protect) initiative. This book is crucial for any students wanting to understand why genocides have occurred, why they still occur and what the key historical discussions around this subject entail.

Interactions with a Violent Past

Reading Post-Conflict Landscapes in Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam

The Second and Third Indochina Wars are the subject of important ongoing scholarship, but there has been little research on the lasting impact of wartime violence on local societies and populations, in Vietnam as well as in Laos and Cambodia. Today's Lao, Vietnamese and Cambodian landscapes bear the imprint of competing violent ideologies and their perilous material manifestations. From battlefields and massively bombed terrain to reeducation camps and resettled villages, the past lingers on in the physical environment. The nine essays in this volume discuss post-conflict landscapes as contested spaces imbued with memory-work conveying differing interpretations of the recent past, expressed through material (even, monumental) objects, ritual performances, and oral narratives (or silences). While Cambodian, Lao and Vietnamese landscapes are filled with tenacious traces of a violent past, creating an unsolicited and malevolent sense of place among their inhabitants, they can in turn be transformed by actions of resilient and resourceful local communities.

Truth recovery in Northern Ireland

Critically interpreting the past

Northern Ireland has entered what is arguably the key phase in its troubled political history - truth recovery and dealing with the legacy of the past - yet the void in knowledge and the lack of academic literature with regard to victims' rights is particularly striking. This book analyses truth recovery as a fundamental aspect of the transition from political violence to peace, democracy and stability in post-conflict Northern Ireland. Kirk Simpson argues that it is essential for any process of truth recovery in Northern Ireland to provide the victims of political violence with the opportunity to express and articulate their narratives of suffering within the context of public dialogic processes. He outlines a unique and original model: that victims of political violence should be enabled to engage in meaningful truth recovery through a Habermasian process of public democratic deliberation and communication involving direct dialogue with the perpetrators of such violence. This process of 'communicative justice' is framed within Habermas' theory of communicative action and can help to ensure that legitimate truth recovery publicly acknowledges the trauma of victims and subjects perpetrator narratives of political violence to critical scrutiny and rational deconstruction. Crucially, the book aims to contribute to the empowerment of victims in Northern Ireland by stimulating constructive discussion and awareness of hitherto silenced narratives of the conflict. This difficult and unsettling interrogation and interpretation of the conflict from a comparatively 'unknown perspective' is central to the prospects for critically examining and mastering the past in Northern Ireland.

Der führende Trauerexperte Roland Kachler hat nach dem Unfalltod seines 16-jährigen Sohnes einen neuen Weg der Trauerbewältigung gesucht und gefunden. Statt den Verstorbenen "loszulassen", zielt die Methode des Autors darauf, die Liebe für den Verstorbenen so zu bewahren, dass eine liebevolle innere Beziehung entstehen kann und auch wieder Glück erlebt werden darf. Die praktischen Übungen, Hinweise und Tipps am Ende jedes Kapitels helfen, diesen neuen Weg zu gehen. Roland Kachler hat sein seit vielen Jahren erfolgreiches Buch aktualisiert und neu bearbeitet. "Der Tod beendet das Leben, aber nicht die Liebe! Die Trauer zeigt, wie sehr wir den Verstorbenen liebten und immer noch lieben. Die Trauer will, dass die Liebe weitergeht – über den Tod des geliebten Menschen hinaus. Nicht zum Loslassen, sondern zum Lieben will dieses Buch ermutigen und begleiten. Der Verstorbene bleibt eine wichtige, geliebte Person im Leben des Hinterbliebenen. Dabei wissen Trauernde sehr genau, dass die Liebe eine neue Ausdrucksweise braucht. Die Trauer ist das Gefühl, das uns hilft, eine neue Beziehung zum Verstorbenen zu finden. Sie wandelt die bisherige Weise des Liebens in eine neue, in eine innere Liebe. Ich möchte Sie als Leserin und Leser unterstützen, eine andere, aber nicht weniger intensive Beziehung zu Ihrem verstorbenen geliebten Menschen zu finden.Ich möchte Ihnen in diesem Buch Anregungen, konkrete Hilfestellungen und Übungen anbieten, wie Sie Ihre Liebe zu ihrem Verstorbenen weiterleben können."

Post-Conflict Heritage, Postcolonial Tourism

Tourism, Politics and Development at Angkor

Angkor, Cambodia’s only World Heritage Site, is enduring one of the most crucial, turbulent periods in its twelve hundred year history. Given Cambodia’s need to restore its shattered social and physical infrastructures after decades of violent conflict, and with tourism to Angkor increasing by a staggering 10,000 per cent in just over a decade, the site has become an intense focal point of competing agendas. Angkor’s immense historical importance, along with its global prestige, has led to an unprecedented influx of aid, with over twenty countries together donating millions of dollars for conservation and research. For the Royal Government however, Angkor has become a ‘cash-cow’ of development. Post-conflict Heritage, Postcolonial Tourism critically examines this situation and locates Angkor within the broader contexts of post-conflict reconstruction, nation building, and socio-economic rehabilitation. Based on two years of fieldwork, the book explores culture, development, the politics of space, and the relationship between consumption, memory and identity to reveal the aspirations and tensions, anxieties and paradoxical agendas, which form around a heritage tourism landscape in a post-conflict, postcolonial society. With the situation in Cambodia examined as a stark example of a phenomenon common to many countries attempting to recover after periods of war or political turmoil, Post-conflict Heritage, Postcolonial Tourism will be of particular interest to students and scholars working in the fields of Asian studies, tourism, heritage, development, and cultural and postcolonial studies.

Seit Ende des europäischen Kolonialprojekts und mit den aktuellen Auswirkungen der Globalisierung ist die eurozentrische und nationalstaatlich orientierte Konzeption von »Kulturerbe« in eine konfliktgeladene Schieflage geraten, die auch die institutionalisierte Denkmalpflege vor neue Herausforderungen stellt. Dieser Band stellt mit Fallbeispielen aus aller Welt die kulturwissenschaftliche Denkfigur der »Transkulturalität« vor, mit der sich neue Zugangsformen zu Kulturerbe ergeben: mit einer Wertschätzung grenzüberschreitender Kontaktzonen, flüchtig-bildhafter Erscheinungsformen, hybrid-ephemerer Materialität und heterogener Identitätskonstruktionen.

Kritik der schwarzen Vernunft

Der globale Kapitalismus hat seit seiner Entstehung immer schon nicht nur Waren, sondern auch »Rassen« und »Spezies« produziert. Ihm liegt ein rassistisches Denken, eine »schwarze Vernunft« zugrunde, wie der große afrikanische Philosoph und Vordenker des Postkolonialismus Achille Mbembe in seinem brillanten und mitreißenden neuen Buch zeigt. In kraftvollen Linien zeichnet Mbembe die Genese unserer Gegenwart nach, indem er darstellt, wie sich der globale Kapitalismus seit dem Beginn der Neuzeit aus dem transatlantischen Sklavenhandel entwickelt hat. In dieser Zeit steigt Europa zum Zentrum der Welt auf und kreiert die Figur des »Negers«, des »Menschen-Materials«, der »Menschen-Ware«, die über den »schwarzen Atlantik« gehandelt wird. Mit dem Abolitionismus, der Revolution in Haiti, dem Antikolonialismus oder der amerikanischen Bürgerrechtsbewegung kommt zwar seit der Aufklärung eine erste globale Welle der Kritik an der Sklaverei und der »schwarzen Vernunft« des Kapitalismus auf. Dieser breitet sich jedoch in seiner neoliberalen Spielart unaufhaltsam weiter aus und überträgt die Figur des »Negers« nun auf die gesamte »subalterne Menschheit«. In diesem Prozess des »Schwarzwerdens der Welt«, so die radikale Kritik Mbembes, bilden auch Europa und seine Bürger mittlerweile nur noch eine weitere Provinz im weltumspannenden Imperium des neoliberalen Kapitalismus.

Psychologists have done a great deal of research on the effects of trauma on the individual, revealing the paradox that violent experiences are often secreted away beyond easy accessibility, becoming impossible to verbalize explicitly. However, comparatively little research has been done on the transgenerational effects of trauma and the means by which experiences are transmitted from person to person across time to become intrinsic parts of the social fabric. With eight contributions covering Africa, Central and South America, China, Europe, and the Middle East, this volume sheds new light on the role of memory in constructing popular histories - or historiographies - of violence in the absence of, or in contradistinction to, authoritative written histories. It brings new ethnographic data to light and presents a truly cross-cultural range of case studies that will greatly enhance the discussion of memory and violence across disciplines.

«Ein Geschwisterpaar, das im Inzest ein Kind gezeugt und sich damit außerhalb der menschlichen Ordnung begeben hat. Das Neugeborene, das sein Vater namenlos im Wald aussetzt, wird für die beiden zur Inkarnation irdischer Verdammnis. Eine Geschichte von biblischer Wucht und antiker Unentrinnbarkeit in einer Sprache, die lapidare Alltagsdialoge und knappe, präzise Beschreibungen mit glühend-visionärem Pathos verbindet. Alles, die Figuren, die Südstaatenlandschaft, wirkt – und darin besteht McCarthys große Darstellungskunst – real und mythisch zugleich: Apokalypse im Wilden Westen.» (Frankfurter Rundschau)

Colossal and magnificent temples, huge Buddha statues and impressive reliefs: The Khmer Empire reveals himself as completely unique. From the 9th to the 15th century the Khmer ruled over large parts of the present states of Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. They developed their own religious and political beliefs and brought forth extraordinary art and monuments, as for example the world-famous Angkor Wat. Stefano Vecchia describes the origin and development of one of the most magnificent and persistent civilizations of the Asian continent. With numerous illustrations of excellent quality, he takes the reader on a journey through six Centuries of Khmer culture.
