In the Balance opens a space for critical and imaginative reflection on the contested legacy, contemporary meanings, and future possibilities of reconciliation in South Africa. With essays from a diverse and leading set of commentators, the title aims to move beyond current thinking about reconciliation.

Presenting the good news with the bad, the staunch advocates of reconciliation along with its sharpest critics, this book seeks to provide individuals, citizens and the public with ideas about how and why they might wish to undertake their own discussions and deliberations about the meaning and value of reconciliation.
