Truth and Reconciliation Commission of South Africa Report

Truth and Reconciliation Commission of South Africa Report

by Truth and Reconciliation Commission Staff, Desmond Tutu

Overview

The Report of the Truth and Reconciliation of South Africa is one of the most significant documents of our time. Compiled from the evidence of over 20,000 witnesses, the Report represents the record of thirty-four years under apartheid, breaking the terrible silence that surrounded so many gross violations of human rights committed during those years. It contains lessons for the international community, describing the violence and pain that is the unavoidable result of oppression and abuse, and the moral corruption of a society that turns its face away from human rights. The Findings and Recommendations of the Commission constitute not only an inquest on the past, but point the way to a just society.
The Report is in five volumes, each with a particular focus. The International edition includes extended tables of contents, a Guide to using the report, two indices and additional maps. For the list price customers will receive the five volumes cloth bound with a four-colour dust jacket, and each set will be accompanied by a CD-ROM of the full text for more in-depth research. It is remarkably informal in its style; it combines accessible, lucid narrative, with highly evocative quotation, effective layout and powerful full-page photographs
