Abstract

"Reclaiming American Virtue: The Human Rights Revolution of the 1970s." Barbara J. Keys. Harvard University Press. February 2014. --- In this forthcoming book, Barbara J Keys considers how the American commitment to international human rights emerged in the 1970s not as a logical outgrowth of American idealism but as a surprising response to national trauma. Keys’ focus on the American perspective offers a unique examination of an aspect of the human rights movement that is so often overlooked: the need to not only look at what concepts we embrace, but why we embrace them, writes Kristen Perrin.
