Editorial Reviews

Commentary
Chronicles in specific and accurate detail the process whereby Carter's originally broadgauged approach to human rights, fashioned in part by Senator Henry Jackson, was captured by the radical left wing of the Democratic Party and transformed into a weapon to bludgeon America's undemocratic allies. All this is richly and elegantly analyzed by Muravchik.
Choice
An excellent framework for examining human rights issues....Recommended for all academic libraries.
The Wall Street Journal
Muravchik may be the most cogent and careful of the neoconservative writers on foreign policy.
American Spectator
Succinct...crisply written.
Best Sellers
Very good indeed in describing the play of domestic political forces and the internal machinations of U.S. foreign policy.
Foreign Affairs
This compact and useful monograph illuminates the problems.
