Ghostly Matters: Haunting and the Sociological Imagination

Cover
U of Minnesota Press, 1997 - 252 Seiten
'Avery Gordon's stunningly original and provocatively imaginative book explores the connections linking horror, history, and haunting. She shows how fiction writing can sometimes function as a social force, as a repository of memories that are too brutal, to debilitating, and too horrifying to register through direct historical or social science narratives...'--George Lipsitz, University of California, San Diego
