Through the use of narratives and case studies from Mexico, Turkey, and el Salvador, Democratization and Memories of Violence: Ethnic Minority Rights Movement in Mexico, Turkey, and el Salvador contributes to areas of study such as comparative politics, sociology, as well as peace and conflict. Gellman examines how ethnic minority communities use memories of state and paramilitary violence as a social movement tactic. Combining theory and empirics allows the reader to examine how democratization molds citizen experiences of interest representation and how memorialization processes challenge state regimes of forgetting at local, state, and international levels.
