Tom Farer has proved himself, in writing and in action, a doughty champion of human rights. Here he reviews recent U.S. foreign policy in that field, applauding the accomplishments of the Carter period, recognizing the limits, and giving some practical advice. The remaining contributions include a discussion of the politics of human rights in Washington (by Sandra Vogelgesang), and critical case studies by country experts on what U.S. policy should be, or should have been, in South Africa, Iran and Korea.
