Fellow and member of the steering group of the Institute for Human Rights, Dr. Sarah Snyder, is reviewed by former United States Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs, Richard Schifter
23 March 2012
International Affairs is a hugely important journal in the fields of International Politics and International Relations. So their choice to review Dr. Snyder's book, Human Rights and Activism at the End of the Cold War, Cambridge University Press (2011), is testimony enough to the quality of her work as a historian. But not only that, the reviewer of the book is none other than Richard Schifter, who worked in the position of Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs, first under the Reagan administration from 1985-1989, continuing in that capacity post Reagan until 1992. That a key player in some of the historical events described and analysed in Snyder's book should take the time to read and review it speaks volumes as to the work's significance.
