This bookAnalyses the role of museums in transforming lives and creating a just future. Explores how museums help ordinary people overcome loss suffered during conflict. Draws on fieldwork in a range of museums in Vietnam, alongside interviews with museum workers and stakeholders, and analyses of museum exhibitions. Also brings in question the dynamics between history and memory; the capacity of the museum to repair injury, loss or suffering; and the limits of historical memory beyond the control of a one-party state.

Will be of interest to academics and students engaged in the study of museums, heritage, Asia, tourism and anthropology.
