Summary/Abstract: The publication of the famous British sociologist Paul Connerton was written in a very clear manner, it is short but extremely rich in content. It deals with many issues and refers to at least a dozen trends in research on memory. Cultural memory studies appear in the light of Connerton's considerations as a "non-paradigmatic" and "transdisciplinary" undertaking, based on sociology, history, psychology, literary criticism, anthropology, political science and many other disciplines. For the first time the publication appeared in 1989 in the prestigious series „Themes in the Social Sciences” published by Cambridge University Press. Since then, it has been published in eighteen subsequent editions, and has been translated into many European and Asian languages.
