        The Future of Nostalgia

        Svetlana Boym

        Basic Books 2008

        ISBN 9780465007080

      1. Cultural theorist Boym’s book uses philosophy, art history, cultural critique, and personal history in its analysis of the curious resurgence of nostalgia in the age of globalization, particularly seen from the post-1989 perspective. ‘What is the fate of old world memories in the new world order?,’ asks Boym. See in particular Part 1, and the text Nostalgia and Post-Communist Memory. Could be seen as a less theoretical counterpart to Susan Buck-Morss’s Dreamworld and Catastrophe.
