Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
[a] remarkable reference...Essential for major academic and public research libraries." Library Jourbanal
Library Journal
Presented to President Nelson Mandela in October 1998, these 2,759 pages are part testimony, part background history, and part commission findings from the historic hearings on the apartheid era. In the interest of national healing, hundreds told their terrible stories, which are cited here in their entirety, along with the confessions of former perpetrators whose unspeakable abuses were absolved on condition of full disclosure. This tremendous national act of will and forgiveness makes for both chilling and inspiring reading. A landmark event. (LJ 6/15/99) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
This five-volume report weighs and distills the evidence of about 21,000 witnesses to recount the violations of human rights in South Africa between 1960 and 1994. It seeks not only to establish responsibility but to investigate the truth in order to reconcile victims and perpetrators in a process leading to a just society. Volume 1 discusses key concepts within the Commission itself and society at large; Volume 2 addresses gross violations of human rights; Volume 3 gives the perspective of the victims in each region; Volume 4 explores the broader institutional and social environment; and Volume 5 contains the conclusions drawn. The included CD-ROM lists the names of all individuals mentioned as well as every instance where they occur. Published by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

    Best Books of 1999 - Los Angeles Times

    Selected by the Los Angeles Times as one of the Best Books of 1999! 'That post-apartheid South Africa is a 'miracle' is by now a commonplace. Just how miraculous that miracle was is confirmed by even a cursory glance through the pages of this extraordinary and indispensable document....one of the most important documents of this century.' --The Los Angeles Times Book Review
