Summary
"Survivors of political violence give testimony in families and communities, trials and truth commissions, religious institutions, psychotherapies, newspapers, documentaries, artworks, and even in solitude. In this book, Stevan Weine focuses on the hope survivors express again and again that, no matter what horrors or humiliations they have endured, some good might come of their stories. Weine examines testimonies from four historical nightmares of the twentieth century and, applying the theory of Mikhail Bakhtin, seeks to read them as the stories they are meant to be, fully conveying their legitimacy, resourcefulness, power-and, finally, hope." "A deeply involving, compassionate, and occasionally confrontational blend of dialogic theory and practical experience emerging from the author's decade-long work in Europe and Chicago with survivors of the Balkan wars, this book asserts that efforts to use testimony to address the consequences of political violence can be strengthened-though by no means guaranteed-if they are based on a fuller acknowledgment of the personal and ethical elements embodied in the narrative essence of testimony.
