There are a lot of reasons to be cynical about politics and human nature. But this is one of those books that reminds me there is hope. Tutu's description of South Africa cuts to your soul. At times I was repulsed by the bestial, depraved acts that humans are capable of. At other times I was overwhelmed by the strength of moral character exhibited during this time. The TRC brings to light the full gammit of human behavior in a way that very few experiences can. And the way Tutu describes the process is both informative and inspiring.
