520    "During the transition to democracy, states have used 
       various mechanisms to address previous human rights abuses
       including domestic trials, truth and reconciliation 
       commissions and internationalized tribunals. This volume 
       analyzes the transitional justice choices made by four 
       countries: Argentina, Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH), Sierra 
       Leone and East Timor. For each country, there is a chapter
       which provides a historical overview concerning the causes
       of the conflict and two subsequent chapters which 
       highlight a different method of transitional justice 
       implemented. The volume highlights the opportunities and 
       the constraints faced by states and the international 
       community to provide accountability for human rights 
       violations"--Provided by publisher.
