Book excerpt: Mining Memory examines how twentieth-century narratives and films reimagine the self and the nation by representing child and adolescent protagonists and their evolution. The book shows that beyond representing the struggles of individual subjects, narratives of childhood are part of a process of constructing and reconstructing cultural identity.
