This book offers an analysis of transitional justice # retribution andreparation after a change of political regime # from Athens in thefifth century b.c. to the present. Part I, #The Universe of TransitionalJustice,# describes more than thirty transitions, some of them in consid-erable detail, others more succinctly. Part II, #Analytics of TransitionalJustice,# proposes a framework for explaining the variations among thecases: why after some transitions wrongdoers from the previous regimeare punished severely and in other cases mildly or not at all, and whyvictims are sometimes compensated generously and sometimes poorlyor not at all. After surveying a broad range of justifications and excusesfor wrongdoings and criteria for selecting and indemnifying victims, thebook concludes with a discussion of three general explanatory factors:economic and political constraints, the retributive emotions, and theplay of party politics.
