The issues related to memory (or lost memory) of trauma have become lightning rods for therapists, their clients, scientists, and even politicians. Professor McNally provides a critical analysis of this important topic and weaves together data collected from numerous and varied sources. He demonstrates his careful scholarship as he reviews our current understanding of the processes of memory, especially as influenced by emotions and the hypothesized ways in which memory can be repressed or altered.
