Bernard Giesen. Triumph and Trauma

2010, vol. 9, No. 2, pp. 112–117 [issue contents]
The reviewed work is a book by one of the most significant scientists of the cultural sociology paradigm. It is the analysis of cultural trauma in Germany. Author shows that national identity in the post-nazi Germany is constructed around the figure of perpetrator. The complex of guilt of the Holocaust has spread beyond Germany and the Holocaust itself became the iconic representation of the evil.
