...an excellent opportunity for the reader to access a stimulating
collection of work written by experienced researchers within the
context of transitional justice...It is quite simply an outstanding
achievement. -- Declan Crawley * Irish Probation Law Journal *
... this is a very impressive collection - wide-ranging, informative, topical and insightful. It will certainly appeal to anyone interested in criminal justice in Northern Ireland but the issues it raises have a resonance far beyond there, and so it will also appeal to academics, researchers, policy-makers and others interested in transitional contexts and in the dynamics of institutional reform more generally. -- Aogan Mulcahy, University College Dublin * The British Journal of Criminology *
