Reviews

'Transitional Justice in Peru is the most definitive account on the subject. Highly engaging and nuanced, it is a timely look at a fascinating if largely overlooked case. But it is also much more than that. Rebecca K. Root situates her new book within the broadest global context, making it required reading for anyone interested in transitional justice and human rights in today's world.'

Sonia Cardenas, Trinity College, author of Human Rights in Latin America

'With a careful focus on Peru, Rebecca K. Root's deeply insightful analysis, Transitional Justice in Peru, will inform our understanding of the resolution of long-standing human rights violations and the growth of democratic processes in Latin America and the wider world.'

Daniel Masterson, United States Naval Academy, author of The History of Peru

'Rebecca K. Root situates Peru's transitional justice (TJ) experience within the regional and global experience of TJ and within the evolution of academic and policy thinking about TJ. Specialists will appreciate her theoretically rich analysis of Peru's decade-long TJ process and its impact on Peruvian society. Moreover, Root's focus on how domestic and international actors have shaped Peru's TJ process and on how Peru has influenced evolving human rights norms is welcome. At the same time, her straightforward presentation of TJ debates and Peru's recent history makes the book accessible to students and general audiences.'

Eric Wiebelhaus-Brahm, Florida State University, author of Truth Commissions and Transitional Societies
