This book explores the cultural meanings and political implications of the practices of remembering, reinscribing, and retelling memories of Hiroshima. In exploring the politics of historical knowledge about Hiroshima, this ethnography deploys the concept of memory as its central device. It examines some of the spatial strategies that have contributed to taming knowledge about the city's past, analyzes the testimonial practices of Hiroshima's survivors, and considers how acts of remembrance have produced ethnic and gendered subjectivities in the post-war years.
