“At last, we have a quality overview of human rights progress and challenges in the Americas. This volume fills a crucial gap in the literature, allowing us to assess the complex and fascinating human rights ebb and flow that has been the experience of Latin America, including the often contradictory role of the United States as champion and obstacle.”
“A very authoritative overview written by some of the real experts on the subject, this volume tackles the enigma of human rights in the Western hemisphere. After moving out of its dark past in the 1970s and 1980s, Latin America has much to offer that is of universal interest, while Canada and the United States remain perplexingly aloof.”
