Over five central chapters, Remembering the Cold War takes a series of events and case studies and examines the ways in which they are now ‘remembered’, from Hiroshima and nuclear-bunkers-turned-museums, through the sale of pieces of the Berlin Wall, to Hollywood films about spying. The volume engages with growing theorisation in the field of memory studies, specifically in relation to war.
