"Profoundly thoughtful and humane reflections on a subject of utmost importance, not only to Jews and Jewish culture, but to Western culture itself." Emily Miller Budick, The Hebrew University. Studies in Contemporary Jewry"
"Representing the Holocaust is an impressive book that will have a significant impact on the way historians think about the Holocaust and the writing of history. LaCapra's precise and probing study explores the ways that the traumatic event inevitably disrupts the relationship between representation and memory. He writes from the deep conviction that whatever historians might believe, theory is indispensable for them. Indeed, his work best exemplifies the value of theory, setting a standard for historiographical reflection that is not easily matched." Anson Rabinbach, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art"
"Representing the Holocaust is a probing analysis of the relations between historiographical, personal, and cultural identity formation in the aftermath of the historical trauma of the Holocaust." John E. Toews, American Historical Review"
"Dominick LaCapra may be the most original intellectual historian writing in America today. LaCapra begins, in this book, to provide a means by which one can critically examine the engagement of the historian/critic with his or her object of study." Sander L. Gilman, Modern Philology"
From the Back Cover
'Dominick LaCapra's use of psychoanalytic concepts and critical theory for the historical representation of the Holocaust is intellectually brilliant and challenging as well as attuned to the very nature of the subject.'See all Product Description
