Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book gives a fresh and fascinating analytical account of the Inter-American Convention of Human Rights, a pact that includes substantive guarantees of economic, social, and cultural rights. These guarantees are examined not only from the US perspective, but also from a Latin American angle, with a considerable focus on amnesty, emergencies, and the protection of minorities and indigenous peoples.
