Über den Autor
Marie-Benedicte Dembour is a Lecturer in law at the University of Sussex.
"Dembour is to be warmly congratulated on her achievement, both intellectually and in terms of memory retrieval content . . . Its anthropological skills and merits apart, for readers [interested] in colonial administrators [this book] is at once a prime analysis and a rich resource." - African Affairs
"An unusual achievement. Dr. Dembour's book is a work of theory, which shows what a complex business the production of knowledge is, but she writes with such warmth, directness and honesty that fundamental epistemological issues are made vivid for beginning students as well as experienced scholars . . . Anyone who conducts interviews, students of memory and history, and those working in 'colonial studies' can all learn from this study." - Elizabeth Tonkin
"I congratulate you on an extraordinary work. I am sure it will be declared post-modern; I think it modern in the best sense--up to the critical standards of our day . . . I see you engaged in ground-breaking work." - Johannes Fabian
