"An accessible book filled with wisdom and humanity." -Bernard Mergen, American Studies International
"Aphoristic and witty, [Silencing the Past] shows that the two senses in which history is made, by doers and by tellers, meet in moments of evidentiary silence. [A] hard-nosed look at the soft edges of public discourse about the past." -Arjun Appadurai
"Trouillot is a first-rate scholar with provocative ideas. . . . His work [is] a feast for the mind." -Jay Freeman, Booklist
"A sparkling interrogation of the past. . . . A beautifully written, superior book." -Foreign Affairs
"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
"Written with clarity, wit, and style throughout, this book is for everyone interested in historical culture." -Civilization
