The Wars We Inherit Military Life, Gender Violence, and Memory by Lori E. Amy

The Wars We Inherit Military Life, Gender Violence, and Memory


The Wars We Inherit Military Life, Gender Violence, and Memory by Lori E. Amy

How and why war and military culture have a traumatic impact on families and memory


By making the figure of the child central to the story of this book, the author charts out a dazzling path showing us how to draw lines of connection between the routine violence of a militarization and the routine if bewildering violence of the home. There is no easy way to describe how the voice of the child left me wounded even as I say how grateful I am for the author's courage and restraint. -Veena Das, Krieger-Eisenhower Professor of Anthropology and Professor of Humanities, Johns Hopkins University
