As postmodernists question the nature of truth, memory, and history; as history books are rewritten to reflect multiculturalism, polyvocality, and the decentring of knowledge; as the humanities become increasingly reflexive; and as issues of memory loss and retrieval are researched, debated, and litigated, it is appropriate to consider how other cultures conceive and use memory."
