Summary: 'The Landscape of Historical Memory' explores the place of museums and memorial culture in the contestation over historical memory in post-martial law Taiwan. The book is particularly oriented toward the role of politics, especially political parties, in the establishment, administration, architectural design, and historical narratives of museums. It is framed around the wrangling between the 'blue camp' (the Nationalist Party, or KMT, and its supporters) and the 'green camp' (Democratic Progressive Party, or DPP, and its supporters) over what facets of the past should be remembered and how they should be displayed in museums.
