5.0 out of 5 stars An exercise in the problems of mass violence, July 2 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Between Vengeance and Forgiveness: Facing History after Genocide and Mass Violence (Paperback)
Martha Minow has done her research. She carefully explored the different approaches to mass violence without over-moralizing or answering any of the unanswerable questions. Drawing on history, she charts a course for the human rights community today. This is a readable book for people who are new to the concept of human rights and those who have phD's in the field. Best of all, it does not leave you with a feeling of a weight upon your shoulders. Instead, it is some-how optimistic about a future that addresses the mass violence. I underlined about half of this book, and would recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here is a lady who is not afraid to tackle the big issues., Oct. 16 2000
This review is from: Between Vengeance and Forgiveness: Facing History after Genocide and Mass Violence (Paperback)
For anyone interested in international law or human rights, this is a must-read. I am assigning this book to my undergraduates this semester because, although the subject matter is complex, Minow's prose is clean and spare. Minow does a terrific job of summarizing the episodes of mass violence of the 20th century AND the literature in legal and political studies on war crimes, human rights violations, and justice. I don't always share her optimism that solutions can be found, but I cannot think of another author who grapples with this difficult subject matter quite as gracefully or comprehensively.
