This is a book about living with the past. About about the process of constructing cultural memory, about the negotiation, implicit or explicit, between what is remembered, transmuted into narrative, handed on from generation to generation, and what is forgotten, unspoken, overlooked. Alana Vincent's underlying assumption is that the understanding of the past generated by such a process plays an essential role in shaping attitudes and actions of individuals and societies in the present. As well as memory, this book is about identity, imagination and the role they paly in liturgy. In 'Making Memory' Alana Vincent examines a sample of memorial sites and texts through which the boundaries between living (individual) memory, cultural memory, and history are constantly being re-negotiated. None of these is neutral. Each one is a construction; each both presents a particular interpretation of the event(s) it represents and is itself subject to interpretation and re-interpretation - the same process liturgy is subject to.

Alanca M. Vincent is Lecturer in Jewish Studies and Academic Advisor to Partnerships at the University of Chester.Review:
Unlike many books about war and genocide, Vincent eschews a discourse of trauma in favour of memorializing as active engagement with the past, typified by her decision to end, not with the Holocaust, but with two Canadian Jewish novels about Holocaust survivors' children. Time moves forward. A new generation of rememberers are born, and with them, perhaps, new ways of remembering. (M. Adryael Tong Theology, Vol. 119 No. 4, July/August 2016)

Proof of that, designation can be found in the vast and ever-increasing volume of scholarly work on violence, trauma, memory, and history across diverse academic disciplines. This book demonstrates not only the ways in which the wars of the twentieth century have altered theological engagement and religious practice, but also the degree to which religious ways of thinking have shaped the way we construct historical narratives. Drawing on diverse sources - from the Hebrew Bible to Commonwealth war graves, from Greek tragedy to post-Holocaust theology - Alana M. Vincent probes the intersections between past and present, memory and identity, religion and nationality. The result is a book that defies categorization and offers no easy answers, but instead pursues an agenda of theological realism, holding out continued hope for the restoration of the world.
