Editorial Reviews

Review

"Schaffer and Smith's book is stunning and pathbreaking. Its narratives profoundly translate into human terms the meanings of sexual servitude, political repression, the theft of children, and more. Through its theory of narratives, the book frames a new vision of justice that links literature (storytelling) to politics (social movements) to law (human rights). A must-read for all advocates of social justice."--Eric K. Yamamoto, Professor of Law, University of Hawaii, and author of the award-winning book Interracial Justice: Conflict and Reconciliation in Post-Civil Rights America

"Eloquent testimony to the power of narrative and personal testimony, Human Rights and Narrated Lives tells of Korean comfort women, kidnapped children, torture victims, and political prisoners--a chorus of voices demanding recognition. Simply the best book on the role of storytelling in the search for justice."--Richard Delgado, Professor of Law & Derrick Bell Fellow in Law, University of Pittsburgh

"This book brings to light important alternative perspectives to those offered by governments and the media. It personalizes and humanizes, through its narratives, these traumatic world events."--Pat Chew, Professor of Law and editor of The Conflict and Culture Reader

"This book brings together two significant features of our times: the vocabulary of human rights and the technique of personal storytelling. It weaves politics and literature together to provide a rich and productive analysis of the global fight for justice. The book shows us that there are many ways of recognizing injustice and abuse of rights and the value of the narratives of peoples' lives in making the case for action to promote justice."--Hilary Charlesworth, Professor of International Law, The Australian National University

As usual Smith writes an informative impressive book dealing about autobiography and its uses. I bought the book as I was talking a couse on autobiography. Smith uses easy to understand words. At the same time the book gives the reader an excellent idea about the uses of autobiography. the book is worthwhile for anyone studying the uses of autobiography. Besides, smith is a renouned critic so so can use the book as a reference if you are writing a paper on autobiography. /
