South Africa's extraordinary history over the last two decades has spawned a host of publications which engage with the country's political transformation, from the academic to the popular, the comprehensive to the personal, the positive to the pessimistic. The shaping of these contesting views and the inherent role of memorialisation in our understanding of the 'new South Africa' is a compelling route for excavating the broader field of memory studies, which has also been attracting a great deal of scholarly attention of late, as Martin Murray remarks in his book, Commemorating and forgetting, that adds another title to the growing literature.
