Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This work is a transcript of a conference held in November 1998, edited by convener and organizer Hopkins, a professor at the University of Virginia. Participants included Betty Williams of Northern Ireland, Desmond Tutu of South Africa, and Rigoberta Mench of Guatemala. As evidenced here, they spoke movingly and effectively on the welfare of children, the horror of land mines, the fate of Tibet, and other subjects. Many readers with an interest in world affairs and human freedom will enjoy this volume. For most collections. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
