As this select, though extensive, bibliography went to press in this issue of the Journal of Law and Religion, the South African Truth and Reconciliation (TRC) was about to release its final report. The nature and work of the TRC have generated and continue to generate considerable debate on a number of matters – such as amnesty, prosecutions, reparations, reconciliation, truth, and responsibility – in a variety of forms – conferences, workshops, and papers. The purposes of this bibliography are to document and support critical inquiry into the nature of South African reconciliation and transitional justice. Resources and subjects included in the bibliography are organized into eight major sections: (1) primary documents; (2) the context, work, and findings of the TRC; (3) comparative truth commission processes and transitional justice; (4) international law and the international criminal court; (5) history, memory, and healing: (6) civil, political, and economic issues; (7) ethical, philosophical, and theological concerns; and (8) website and Internet sources. There is also an excellent introduction to the bibliography by Charles Villa-Vicencio of the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (Cape Town, South Africa).
