Reviews

"The diverse essays, many by African scholars, make this an essential collection on a topic just beginning to animate African studies. Outstanding in their well-balanced combination of ethnography and theory, they thoroughly contextualize their topic. The contrast between the local and the international alone that this well-thought-out book illuminates is valuable." -- Pnina Werbner, author of The Making of an African Working Class
"This important volume asks us to step back and reconsider current processes for seeking justice-for righting wrongs, holding criminals accountable for their crimes, and fostering harmony-and to ask what should always have been the first question: what are the meanings individuals and communities attach to `justice'? Or, indeed, is there anything like `justice' in Africa that can equate to the many, differing definitions of justice in the West?" -- Brett Shadle, author of The Souls of White Folk: White Settlers in Kenya, 1900-1920s
