The Truth and Reconciliation Commission was established by the Promotion of National Unity Act 1995 and conducted its work over two and a half years before delivering its report to President Mandela in October 1998. Led by the Most Reverend Desmond M Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Archbishop of Cape Town, the sixteen Commissioners were drawn from all walks of South African life. The Report includes a detailed account of how the Commission did its work, including the legal challenges to its powers. The last of these, brought by Former President de Klerk, resulted in the blacking out of the Commission's findings on his role (the ANC also attempted to block publication, but was unsuccessful).From Library Journal:
Presented to President Nelson Mandela in October 1998, these 2,759 pages are part testimony, part background history, and part commission findings from the historic hearings on the apartheid era. In the interest of national healing, hundreds told their terrible stories, which are cited here in their entirety, along with the confessions of former perpetrators whose unspeakable abuses were absolved on condition of full disclosure. This tremendous national act of will and forgiveness makes for both chilling and inspiring reading. A landmark event. (LJ 6/15/99)
