The New York Times Book Review
"There is perhaps no more succinct and authoritative account of . . . pivotal events in recent Latin American history. There is certainly no better-written and more riveting account."
The Washington Post Book World
"Rosenberg . . . provides sharp analysis and history. . . . This is an important book. Rosenberg asks all sides for answers, ad braves real physical danger, and retains a healthy incredultiy and sense of humor."
"It is Rosenberg's intelligent eye, her sense of the absurd, her unfailing courage and perseverance, and most important, her empathy and compassion that bring Children of Cain to life and start to lead North American readers down the hard path toward understanding Latin America."
