Winner of the 2015 Shelf Unbound Indie Notable Award Thanks to a drunken accident in Western Uganda, Martin and Andrew think they've found the next culinary craze to hit Manhattan's trendy restaurant scene. They're about to find out they've stumbled onto a centuries-old secret that, once unleashed, may be impossible to contain. Everyone wants something from the new discovery. Andrew wants a chance to make a decent living and escape his dead-end job. Self-absorbed, greed-driven Martin wants to profit from a cutthroat industry that envisions a revolutionary product lurking in the find. Military organizations at home and abroad have their own more violent agendas. And, hidden in a West Ugandan valley, a tribe of guardians wonder if an ancient prophecy is reaching fulfillment or if the world discovered their secret too soon. In a story reminiscent of Crichton and Brown's corporate and religious thrillers, John Butziger presents a potent mix of adventure, conspiracy, and the mystical. From the petty double-dealing of a culinary network channel to the high-stakes world of cyber espionage, Butziger weaves a complex adventure where few can be trusted-and all want to control the power of The Second Tree. 1.

Transitional justice mechanisms have been increasingly employed by societies emerging from violent pasts. These mechanisms are intended to enable individuals and the society to effectively confront and deal with the past in order to establish or renew civic trust, enhance reconciliation and prevent the recurrence of conflict. Dealing with the past however is a difficult process that calls calls for re-modifying the lenses through which we address issues of peace and justice in post conflict societies. Northern Uganda has not been left out of this furore, and in its attempt to build sustainable peace, it has encountered a complex range of issues. This book examines the complexity of implementing transitional justice mechanism. Focusing on northern Uganda, it examines the debates, challenges and opportunities that have emerged during attempts to address the atrocities and suffering experienced during the 22 year war.
For over two decades, northern Uganda has been at the epicentre of the most violent conflict waged by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) rebels against the Government of Uganda. The LRA has been using some traditional and Christian rituals in its war. The LRA conflict has evolved and has had regional security implications to the Great Lakes of Africa. In this book, the author examines whether integrating context specific indigenous ritual elements into contemporary conflict management approaches would address the characteristically ritualistic LRA conflict. Using the case of the Acholi of northern Uganda, the author critically examines the efficacy of indigenous rituals in conflict transformation. The major findings revealed that some Acholi indigenous rituals have been used for generations in the management of small-scale conflicts and are perceived to be effective. Whether the indigenous rituals that are perceived as effective in the management of small-scale conflicts have the potentials of being adapted in the management of the LRA conflict remains controversial. It is through this unique lens that the book contributes to the contemporary debate on ending the LRA conflict.
