On July 4, 1990, while on a morning walk in southern France, Susan Brison was attacked from behind, severely beaten, sexually assaulted, strangled to unconsciousness, and left for dead. She survived, but her world was destroyed. Her training as a philosopher could not help her make sense of things, and many of her fundamental assumptions about the nature of the self and the world it inhabits were shattered. At once a personal narrative of recovery and a philosophical exploration of trauma, this book examines the undoing and remaking of a self in the aftermath of violence. It explores, from an interdisciplinary perspective, memory and truth, identity and self, autonomy and community. It offers imaginative access to the experience of a rape survivor as well as a reflective critique of a society in which women routinely fear and suffer sexual violence. As Brison observes, trauma disrupts memory, severs past from present, and incapacitates the ability to envision a future. Yet the act of bearing witness, she argues, facilitates recovery by integrating the experience into the survivor's life's story. She also argues for the importance, as well as the hazards, of using first-person narratives in understanding not only trauma, but also larger philosophical questions about what we can know and how we should live. Bravely and beautifully written, Aftermath is that rare book that is an illustration of its own arguments.

Hamburg 1946 – wenn aus Feinden Freunde werden Hamburg 1946: Ein englischer Offizier soll für die Entnazifizierung und den Wiederaufbau Deutschlands sorgen. Colonel Lewis Morgan wird mit seiner Familie in ein herrschaftliches Haus an der Elbe einquartiert. Seine Frau kann aber nicht verstehen, dass der Hausbesitzer Stefan Lubert nicht ausziehen muss. Sie findet die Idee, mit dem Feind unter einem Dach zu wohnen, unerträglich. Doch als sie den Alltag teilen, erkennt sie, wie grob und falsch ihr Bild von den Deutschen war. Nach und nach entwickelt sich eine unerhörte Nähe zwischen ihr und Stefan Lubert ... Ein selten beschriebenes Kapitel deutscher Geschichte – Rhidian Brook zeichnet ein enorm differenziertes Bild von einem Land, das am Boden liegt, von einer verstörten Bevölkerung, aber auch von dem Hoffnungsschimmer nach Tod und Vernichtung. Ein Roman von größter Intensität.
