On Irreconciliation focuses on the less examined but frequent ethnographic instances when survivors refuse to forgive in response to persistent impunity of past injustices, particularly, in the face of absence-presence of the rule of law and staged processes of justice which serve the powerful.
* An ethnographically-informed, interdisciplinary theorisation which makes irreconciliation visible in the contexts of Northern Ireland, Papua New Guinea, Mozambique, Bangladesh, Canada, Argentina, Sri Lanka, Colombia, USA and UK
* Triangulates a discussion of the rule of law within processes of unresolved genocidal injustices, debates relating to statues of slave owners, racial prejudice and institutional responses
* Contributors demonstrate the relationship of irreconciliation with law, aesthetics, temporality, resistance and the limits of the concept
* Makes a theoretical and ethnographic case for irreconciliation as both a social and political phenomenon
* Proposes an understanding of the past based on a positive commitment to 'irreconciliation' which might interest anthropologists, historians, philosophers, critical legal and political theorists, peace, conflict resolution and transitional justice scholars
