E-Book review:

From

The South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission is the most prominent of inquiry groups that have been charged with finding the intersection of truth and justice in the aftermath of some atrocity, but it is by no means the only one nor is it likely to be the last. But given the prominence and the consciousness of post-apartheid South Africa, its truth commission provides the model against which others are measured. Rotberg and Thompson have compiled a collection of essays that primarily examine the South African experience but also look at conditions in Sri Lanka, Haiti, Guatemala, and El Salvador that seem ripe for such commissions. Contributors explore the history, causes, conflicts, and contradictions of truth commissions, and critique the potential and limitations of the process. It is a process wrought with conflict between truth and justice, reconciliation and retribution. The diverse group of contributors brings exceptionally wide exposure and depth to the subject. Their handling of the political compromises that underlay the foundation of most truth commissions is helpful. This is an important book for those interested in contemporary efforts to deal with modern atrocities. Vernon Ford

Review


This volume of essays, which concentrates on the South African experience while drawing on others elsewhere, is a useful and timely reminder of the tough and messy compromises that were made between the competing demands of justice and retribution, peace and forgiveness. -- The Economist


This is an important book for those interested in contemporary efforts to deal with modern atrocities . . . The diverse group of contributors brings exceptionally wide exposure and depth to the subject. -- Booklist


An engaging collection of essays . . . -- Reed Brody, The Nation


The essays themselves are accessible clear, well-written, and engaging and extraordinarily relevant as we struggle to develop an appropriate response to oppressive regime throughout the world. Truth v. Justice's greatest strength lies in both the individual and collective force of the essays each of which not only is intelligently written and important in its own right, but also demonstrative of the author's clear engagement with one another's concerns. The result is a comprehensive and thought-provoking analysis of the truth commission. -- Karen Newirth, International Law and Politics


One of the most painful and conspicuous gaps is the impunity usually enjoyed, after their removal from power, by men who, while in power, trampled on the human rights of their own pwople or even waged war against them. Truth v. Justice focuses on the most promising device our civilization has invented to remedy that particular and all too familiar shortfall of justice. -- Geoffrey Best, Times Literary Supplement


A highly civilized, lively and provocative exchange between interesting people of diverse backgrounds and positions. -- Saul Smilansky, Times Literary Supplement
