520 |a "Using ceremonies rooted in tradition, truth-telling bonfires and traditional cleansing, Fambul Tok ('Family Talk') emerged in Sierra Leone as a unique community-owned program bringing together perpetrators and victims of the violence in Sierra Leone's eleven-year civil war to talk, heal, and chart a new path forward, together. This book takes us by the hand to experience this extraordinary journey of reconciliation, one that offers new insights and an original model for peacemaking to the rest of the world. The book includes an extensive chronology and bibliography and documents from the peace process."--P. [4] of cover.
