The first volume devoted solely to autobiographical memoryretrieval, The Act of Remembering serves as a primer ofideas, methodology, and central topics, and lays the groundwork forfuture research in the field. * Contains new, forward-looking theories from leadinginternational scholars * Answers questions such as: Do we retrieve memories according towhen and where we need them? How much conscious control do we haveover what we remember? Why are some people more likely than othersto have intrusive 'flashbacks' following a stressfulevent? * Pays particular attention to voluntary and involuntaryrecall


( , 1 March 2011)The Act of Remembering provides a comprehensive treatment ofautobiographical memory retrieval, which has emerged as a key topicin both psychology and neuroscience. Ranging broadly acrosscognitive, developmental, clinical, and neuropsychologicalapproaches, leading researchers provide a state-of-the-art overviewof where the field has been and where it is going. This volume isessential reading for anyone involved in memory research. --Daniel L. Schacter, Harvard University
"All in all, this is a serious book about a most fascinating subject. What do you wish you could remember or forget?."

This volume is composed of chapters by experts on how memoriesare retrieved from autobiographical memory. Although several bookson autobiographical memory exist, this is the first exclusivelyfocused on processes of retrieval (the act of remembering). Thebook is wide ranging, including chapters on both involuntary andvoluntary memories and even on the topic of intrusive memories thatsometimes occur after traumatic events (and in depression). I canrecommend it with enthusiasm to all researchers interested inremembering. --Henry L. Roediger, III, Washington University at St.Louis
