We are close to seeing our volume on transitional justice in the Former Soviet Union in print! It includes a set of wonderful chapters covering a range of countries, both cases and non-cases. As editors, Cynthia Horne and I are most grateful to all contributors who took the time to write their analyses, and to John Berger at Cambridge University Press for his constant support.
