Truth and indignation : Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian residential schools

Niezen, Ronald, author.

2017.

xvi, 192 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm.

"The original version of Truth and Indignation offered the first close and critical assessment of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) as it was unfolding. Niezen used testimonies, texts, and visual materials produced by the Commission as well as interviews with survivors, priests, and nuns to raise important questions about the TRC process. He asked what the TRC has meant for reconciliation, transitional justice, and conceptions of traumatic memory. The new edition includes an Epilogue that discusses the initial reception of the book while the Commission was still unfolding, and the Final Report and Calls to Action coming out of the report, bringing the book up to date and making it a valuable text for teaching about transitional justice, colonialism and redress, public anthropology and human rights. Thoughtful, provocative, and uncompromising in the need to tell the "truth" as he sees it, Niezen offers an important contribution to understanding truth and reconciliation processes in general, and the Canadian experience in particular."-- Provided by publisher.
