Thoughtful look into an often overlooked situation... 15 Sept. 2007
By Stephanie M. Harris - Published on
Format: Paperback
Trial Justice turned out to be a stimulating and informative read. Allen gives a thorough background on the situation in Northern Uganda and how this crisis has unfolded into its current state; not one part of the story is left untouched. A great book for anyone wishing to explore what international justice means to the world or to learn more about the LRA. Insightful and thought-provoking, I highly recommend Trial Justice as a means of reaching a better understanding of this important, historical event.

Beyond Kony 2012 1 May 2012
By Chimonsho - Published on
Format: Paperback
Thanks to "Kony 2012" the Lord's Resistance Army is suddenly and firmly in the public eye, but grasp of the issues may be limited, even simplistic. This work restores complexity to northern Uganda (and nearby countries where LRA operates), clarifying the historical, ethnographic and international contexts. It highlights a major tragedy of an intractable crisis: the requirements of justice can conflict with reconciliation processes, especially where there is overlap between perpetrators and victims of atrocities. Allen also notes the irony, even hypocrisy, of powerful states pursuing international "justice" only against political enemies or weak offenders. Replete with detail and theories of justice, "TJ" is sometimes dense but valuable for understanding both the LRA and other cases involving war crimes and human rights violations.
