This week Hun Joon Kim received a contract with Cambridge University Press for his co-edited volume Transitional Justice in the Asia Pacific. Although truth commissions and trials in response to mass atrocities in Europe, Latin America and Africa have received a great deal of scholarly attention, those occurring in our region have up until now been neglected. The book grows out of a workshop held at Griffith in June 2011 that attracted some of the world’s leading scholars in the area, including Kathryn Sikkink and Leigh Payne.
The second book to be accepted with Cambridge this week is Global Shell Games: Experiments in Transnational Relations, co-authored by Jason Sharman, Michael Findley and Daniel Nielson. This volume draws its evidence from a global field experiment based on soliciting offers for prohibited untraceable shell companies, and will be published in the Cambridge Series on International Relations.
