Skillfully explores what steps can be taken in the wake of mass atrocities. . . . Incisive and insightful. –Jane Lampman, The Christian Science Monitor

“Compassionate and well-reasoned . . . Minow makes a convincing case for the restorative power of speaking about trauma.” –Alexandra Starr, Washington Monthly

“A deeply humane and empathetic argument.” –Alice Kessler-Harris, The Women’s Review of Books

“Offers a remarkable analysis of a troublesome legacy.” –Donald W. Shriver Jr., The Christian Century

“In taking a closer look at the social and historical roots of genocide and mass violence, Minow recognizes that justice is a process, not an end. Between Vengeance and Forgiveness is complicated, ambiguous, and deeply unsatisfying-exactly as it ought to be.” –Nicholas Confessore, The American Prospect
