Book Announcement by Sue Grand (USA) and Jill Salberg (USA)
Often, our trans-generational legacies are stories of “us” and “them” that never reach their terminus. We carry fixed narratives along with the ghosts of our perpetrators and of our victims. We long to be subjects in our own history, but keep reconstituting the Other as an object in their own history. Trans-generational Trauma and the Other: Dialogues Across History and Difference (Routledge, 2017), co-edited by Jill Salberg and Sue Grand, argues that healing requires us to engage with the Other who carries a corresponding pre-history. Without this dialogue, alienated ghosts can become persecutory objects in psyche, politics, and culture. This volume examines the violent loyalties of the past—the barriers to dialogue with our Other—and complicates the intersubjectivity of Big History. Identifying our inherited narratives and relinquishing splitting, these authors ask how we can re-cast our Other and move beyond dysfunctional repetitions in our individual lives and in society.
