Virtues from Hell: Survivors of Conflicts and the Reconstruction-Reconciliation Processes by Fidèle Ingiyimbere
English | EPUB | 2022 | 166 Pages | ISBN : 3030891720 | 0.3 MB
This book offers a critical examination of certain ideas and values—such as remembering, forgiveness, story-telling through Truth and Reconciliation Commissions, etc.—that undergird the transitional practices and mechanisms of societies emerging from conflicts. It does so by making the survivors’ experience the supreme and ultimate judge of the legitimacy of such practices. While many scholars have dealt with these topics, this book provides a unique perspective on them by using personal stories, narratives and memoirs of the survivors as a checking point of the theoretical elaboration of these ideas and values.
