Mirrors of Justice is a groundbreaking study of the meanings of and possibilities for justice in the contemporary world. The book brings together a group of both prominent and emerging scholars to reconsider the relationships between justice, international law, culture, power, and history through case studies of a wide range of justice processes. The book's eighteen authors examine the ambiguities of justice in Europe, Africa, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, and Melanesia through critical empirical and historical chapters. The introduction makes an important contribution to our understanding of the multiplicity of justice in the twenty-first century by providing an interdisciplinary theoretical framework that synthesizes the book's chapters with leading-edge literatures on human rights, legal pluralism, and international law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Mirrors of Justice contributes novel starting points and insights to thinking about the interrelationship of international law, new forms of legal pluralism, and the shifting and highly contextualized understandings of justice that permeate international and transnational legal arenas. The contributing authors provide ethnographic accounts that underscore how variously the notion of justice works, and with what limits, in international institutions as well as in collective discourses of commemoration and political struggle. This wide-ranging volume poses provocative questions for scholars in anthropology and the wider law and society field.' Carol Greenhouse, Princeton University
