“Few have witnessed or studied the rise, demise, and prosecution of the Khmer Rouge as Craig Etcheson has done for more than three decades. Extraordinary Justice is a gripping eyewitness account of the Khmer Rouge leadership’s final coda in front of domestic and international justice, however imperfect that justice might be. Extraordinary Justice will be the definitive reference text for years to come.”
~Sophal Ear, author of Aid Dependence in Cambodia: How Foreign Assistance Undermines Democracy
This week we will be featuring Craig Etcheson’s Extraordinary Justice: Law, Politics, and the Khmer Rouge Tribunals. Etcheson, one of the world’s foremost experts on the Cambodian genocide and its aftermath, draws on decades of experience to trace the evolution of transitional justice in the country from the late 1970s to the present. Extraordinary Justice offers a definitive account of the quest for justice in Cambodia that uses this history to develop a theoretical framework for understanding the interaction between law and politics in war crimes tribunals. Throughout the week, we will be sharing a book excerpt and a guest post by Etcheson.
