Considerations of the effect of trauma on heritage sites.
The essays in this volume address the displacement of natural and cultural heritage caused by disasters, whether they be dramatic natural impacts or terrible events unleashed by humankind, including holocaust and genocide. Disasters can be natural or human-made, rapid or slow, great or small, yet the impact is effectively the same; nature, people and cultural heritage are displaced or lost. Yet while heritage and place are at risk from disasters, in time,sites of suffering are sometimes reframed as sites of memory; through this different lens these "difficult" places become heritage sites that attract tourists. Ranging widely chronologically and geographically, the contributors explore the impact of disasters, trauma and suffering on heritage and sense of place, in both theory and practice.

Afterword
Select Bibliography
"[T]his remains a book which should be read by those with an interest in the social dimension of disasters, in how society responds in different ways to trauma and loss and how heritage can be repossessed, rebuilt and re-presented in novel ways, implicitly as part of a recovery process. The chapters present contemporary debates and practices based on equally contemporary cases and, given its eclectic content, all readers will find much of interest in the content."
