REVIEWER: JASON CROUTHAMEL

“While there were many cases in which Western thought decisively shaped approaches to psychiatric medicine in Asia, there were also a number of instances in which doctors were critical of American and European concepts. As Narquis Barak shows in a fascinating chapter based on interviews with Vietnamese psychiatrists, the PTSD diagnosis had only limited impact on how doctors conceptualised mental illness in soldiers. PTSD was considered too narrow, and Vietnamese doctors instead emphasised the subjectivities of their patients who were experiencing complex symptoms. The subjectivities of traumatic experience and memory also play a central role in Vannessa Hearman’s analysis of letter writing between Indonesian women imprisoned in the anti-communist purges during the 1960s. Finding therapeutic support through their letter-writing, these women were able to regain a sense of self-worth in the wake of traumatic experiences. Hearman’s chapter builds on innovative new approaches to epistolary culture as an essential therapeutic tool for individuals coping with stress.”

“A number of chapters explore the often hidden languages for narrating trauma in various Asian communities, with sensitivity to complex cultural influences on how trauma is remembered outside the spheres of psychiatric medicine. Caroline Bennett uncovers how narratives of haunting provided a means for individuals to process trauma in post-Khmer Rouge Cambodia. Offering a unique glimpse into non-verbal expressions of trauma, Hua Wu reveals how in complex social relationships and carefully constructed spaces, youth who experienced re-education in China’s cultural revolution provided mutual emotional support. Dyah Pitaloka and Mohan J. Dutta provide engaging analysis of survivors of the 1965 Indonesian mass killings who find a way to heal and overcome stigmatisation through the performance of song. These innovative ways of investigating how ordinary people cope with trauma enhance our knowledge of how individuals heal beyond the influence and control of states and medical authorities.
