Description: 

In the experience documented in this volume, history represents the important component of a more complex interdisciplinary intervention, one where the principal prospective was, and still is, the psychological recovery/support of a community. In what way does history and its guarantors fit into this project? In many ways, and a large part of this volume exemplifies and bears witness to some of these, since all of the contributions were written by historians and anthropologists.
