New work on TRC

18 February 2008

New from the pen of Distinguished Professor Philippe-Joseph Salazar (Centre for Rhetoric Studies) comes a co-edited book with Distinguished Professor of Rhetoric at the University of South Carolina.

Published by New Africa Books, Truth and Reconciliation in South Africa: The Fundamental Documents, is described as a groundbreaking volume, providing "an explicit and often startling view of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission".

"In the name of understanding the commission's development work and findings, it features a rich variety of materials, including many selections from the TRC's archive of testimony and its final report that have yet to receive public scrutiny.

The volume grapples with the difficult concepts of truth and reconciliation and why these words have challenged international preconceptions about the "power and potential of African politics".
