Silencing the Past: Power and the Production of History
Beacon Press, 1995 - 191 páginas
Silencing the Past is a thought-provoking analysis of historical narrative. Taking examples ranging from the Haitian Revolution to Columbus Day, Michel-Rolph Trouillot demonstrates how power operates, often invisibly, at all stages in the making of history to silence certain voices.
"Makes the postmodernist debate come alive."
"Trouillot, a widely respected scholar of Haitian history . . . is a first-rate scholar with provocative ideas . . . Serious students of history should find his work a feast for the mind."
--Jay Freedman, Booklist
"Elegantly written and richly allusive, . . . Silencing the Past is an important contribution to the anthropology of history. Its most lasting impression is made perhaps by Trouillot's own voice--endlessly agile, sometimes cuttingly funny, but always evocative in a direct and powerful, almost poetic way."
--Donald L. Donham, Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
"A sparkling interrogation of the past. . . . A beautifully written, superior book."
"Silencing the Past is a polished personal essay on the meanings of history. . . . [It] is filled with wisdom and humanity."
--Bernard Mergen, American Studies International
"An eloquent book."
"Written with clarity, wit, and style throughout, this book is for everyone interested in historical culture."
"A beautifully written book, exciting in its challenges."
--Eric R. Wolf
"Aphoristic and witty, . . . a hard-nosed look at the soft edges of public discourse about the past."
