Publisher Comments:

Examining competing notions of justice in Bosnia and Rwanda, award-winning Boston Globe correspondent Elizabeth Neuffer convinces readers that crimes against humanity cannot be resolved by talk of forgiveness, or through the more common recourse to forgetfulness

As genocidal warfare engulfed the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, the international community acted too late to prevent unconscionable violations of human rights in both countries. As these states now attempt to reconstruct their national identities, the surviving victims of genocide struggle to come to terms with a world unhinged.

Interviewing victims and aggressors, war orphans and war criminals, Serbian militiamen and NATO commanders, Neuffer explores the extent to which genocide erodes a nations social and political environment, just as it destroys the individual lives of the aggressors perceived enemies. She argues persuasively that only by achieving justice for these people can domestic and international organizations hope to achieve lasting peace in regions destroyed by fratricidal warfare.

Review:

"Captures the human drama at the core of the trials...in intimate and sometimes painful detail....Prodigious research and exemplary reporting." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"By recounting the individual stories of tribunal participants, Elizabeth Neuffer ensures that we do not forget the victims at the heart of these tribunals, and illustrates how the tribunal process itself can bring important healing to individuals." Senator Christopher J. Todd, member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee

Synopsis:

From her unique vantage as a reporter directly covering the reality of genocide in Bosnia and Rwanda, award-winning journalist Neuffer tells the compelling story of two parallel journeys toward justice in each country. 5 maps.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [463]-485) and index.

As a high school student in the 90s, I missed out on some important world events because I never really read the newspaper. Neuffer's insighful descriptions of the genocides in Bosnia and Rwanda created a vivid understanding of how the world waited and waited to make a difference in these two areas. Neuffer's writing provided clarity to a region in eastern Europe that I failed to understand even after receiving a college education. The stories of justice or injustice should be read by anyone seeking to be a better informed, more aware citizen of the world.
