How do families remain close when turbulent forces threaten to tear them apart? In this groundbreaking book based on more than a decade of research set in Vietnam, Merav Shohet explores what happens across generations to families that survive imperialism, war, and massive political and economic upheaval. Placing personal sacrifice at the center of her story, Shohet recounts vivid experiences of conflict, love, and loss. In doing so, her work challenges the idea that sacrifice is merely a blood-filled religious ritual or patriotic act. Today, domestic sacrifices—made largely by women—precariously knot family members together by silencing suffering and naturalizing cross-cutting gender, age, class, and political hierarchies. In rethinking ordinary ethics, this intimate ethnography reveals how quotidian acts of sacrifice help family members forge a sense of continuity in the face of trauma and decades of dramatic change.

To explore literary silence is to explore the relationships between texts and the silence of the ineffable. This study describes silent dynamics through readings of Pascal's 'Pensees', Rousseau's 'Reveries', and Beckett's trilogy 'Molloy', 'Malone Dies' and 'The Unnameable'.

Excerpt from The Sacrifice of Silence Emerson somewhere, and truly, observes that there is a strange power in silence. But there are many kinds of silence. This has been tritely attested from time immemorial by axioms and epigrams laudatory of timely mutism as being at once one of the virtues
