Human Rights in Cuba, El Salvador and Nicaragua
A Sociological Perspective on Human Rights Abuse
This book presents a historical perspective on patterns of human rights abuse in Cuba, El Salvador and Nicaragua and incorporates international relations in to the traditional theories of state repression found within the social sciences.
"A fair and frank assessment acknowledges the enormous Cold War security constaints imposed upon materializing human rights. Mayra Gomez's stimulating volume does this. Investigating human rights abuse trajectories--particularly violations of personal integrity rights, across Cuba, El Salvador, and Nicaragua during recent revolutionary transitions--it boldly and successfully tackles some nagging empirical questions historically, theoretically, and methodologically. Doing so in the context of regional relations, international relations, and comparative politics, helps her open additional dimensions of scholarly atention."
