Bodies of evidence : burial, memory and the recovery of missing persons in Cyprus.

Sant Cassia, P. (2005) 'Bodies of evidence : burial, memory and the recovery of missing persons in Cyprus.', Oxford: Berghahn. New directions in anthropology. (20).


This book examines the way how Missing Persons in Cyprus, individuals lost in the course of inter-ethnic hostilities, have been used by the political leaders of both ethnic groups to carry and project messages of loss, recovery, and ethnic incompatibilty. It explores how memory and obligations towards dead kin and civic subjects can be seen both as a political plan used by state authorities and political leaders, and as a political act on the personal and local level against the very authorities that have employed it : a theme explored by Greek tragedists, like Sophokles, and by Philosophers such as Hegel.
