'… a collection of contemporary case studies that reflect recent developments in the political and conceptual bases of transitional justice. The collection is appealing on a number of levels. It is attractively presented, accessible and in tune with key developments of the field. … It is particularly valuable that the editors have averted their focus from the well trodden path of international criminal justice … The contributions instead address less-commonly acknowledged challenges, such as institutional sequencing, demobilization and reintegration of combatants … I have referred to this book repeatedly in the few weeks it has been sitting on my desk. It is an informative and extremely convenient presentation of transitional justice 'snapshots' … a worthwhile investment for students and practitioners alike.' Sociology
