Human Rights and American Foreign Policy
Human Rights and American Foreign Policy
Edited by Donald P. Kommers and Gilburt D. Loescher
University of Notre Dame Press, 1979, 345 pp.

A symposium held in 1981 concentrated, perforce, on the record of the Carter Administration in the field of human rights, but the different approach of the Reagan team was already taking shape and finds both defenders (including Jeane Kirkpatrick) and critics in these pages. All of them, of individual interest, come to the subject from widely different starting points in time, place and the political predilections of the authors.
