At the beginning of this century, people in various parts of the world have managed to disarm the authoritarian regime of cruelty and began to build democracy. In moments of such radical change, there is an important question: Should the society punish a past regime that was cruel or just let the past be past? This book is very interesting and inspiring, raises the issue to a new level, a level that challenges the various terminology and concepts into contemporary debates.
Using interdisciplinary approaches, Teitel Rüti reveals how a society should respond to an evil regime. Although the argument against the patent view put forward punishment, Teitel himself emphasizes that even with the law holds a very important role in the period of radical change. Teitel also uses comparative and historical-interpretive approach. Along with those, he presents an analysis that deserves to hold when we give various constitutional, legislative and administrative functions responses of the various injustices that follow the political changes. Teitel in this book proposes a new normative conception of justice. According to Teitel, the notion of justice can not be separated from a strong political influence against the sovereignty of law (rule of law) which he said has become a symbol of liberal change.
This book is very challenging various patent assumptions which so far in connection with the transition period. Therefore, the book is intellectually provocative and, in turn, issued to the realm of movement and it's worth and should be used as the primary reading for policy makers, intellectuals and movers of the revolution and the new democracy fighters.
Ruti G. Teitel is Professor of Comparative Law at New York University School of Law, where he also taught courses in international human rights principles and constitutional law.
