Looking Back, Reaching Forward by Zed Books
Book DescriptionBorn with an historic compromise that few predicted, the TRC has evoked emotions ranging from anger and confusion to sympathy and remorse. It has rarely generated indifference. This collection of essays constitutes a tour de force, capturing the essence of the TRC debate, while posing a set of questions with which this country is likely to wrestle for some time to come. Indeed, it is intended to provoke debate rather than provide simply answers to complex questions. This makes it a useful book for teaching purposes as well as for others interested in transitional politics. A number of different voices are heard, all seeking to provoke practical ways forward for a nation that in the early 1990's was teetering on the brink of collapse. The pertinent question posed by the book is: "Where does South Africa go in the post TRC period?" Equally important is the question: "Does the TRC model provide a viable alternative to prosecution for other countries in transition from oppressive rule to a society committed to human rights and the rule of law?"
