Product Description

Edited by Charles Villa-Vicencio and Erik Doxtader

A key event in South Africa’s recent past was the granting of amnesty through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. This thought-provoking collection of essays explores issues such as:

· Was amnesty in South Africa a political compromise? · What are the advantages of truth commissions versus legal trials? · Who decided who was granted amnesty and on what grounds? · How do the victims feel about the truth commission process? · Did the amnesty process make a meaningful contribution to reconciliation?

Contributors to the volume include Antjie Krog, Alex Boraine, George Bizos and Albie Sachs, Dumisa Ntsebeza, Van Zyl Slabbert, and Pumia Gobodo-Madikizela.
