Editorial Reviews

Review

“Sikkink has written a wonderfully smart, thought-provoking new study of the global spread of criminal trials for horrific human rights abuses. This powerful book gives hope for the future of human rights.” (Gary Bass, Professor of Politics and International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University)

“This marvelous book combines lucid reason with deep passion. Cascading through the nooks and crannies of international life, justice’s call is now heard loud and clear by those in power. The Justice Cascade will become an instantaneous classic that all students of international politics will read and refer to for years to come.” (Peter J. Katzenstein, Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor of International Studies, Cornell University)

The Justice Cascade is an immensely engaging account of a scholar’s own personal journey and of how to combine moral passion with systematic social scientific investigation.” (Robert O. Keohane, Professor of International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By James T. Ranney on November 21, 2011
Format: Hardcover
This is a great book, consisting primarily of 1) a terrific history of the growth of prosecutions for violations of human rights (at all levels, national, foreign, and international) and 2) incredible statistical analyses of same, drawing certain conclusions as to their efficacy.
What I liked best was 1) her ability to bring greater clarity to the whole area, and 2) her ability to trace out what I would call "causality" issues (what accounts for the growth of these institutions, etc.).
A GREAT book, vastly informed by the author's personal experiences (especially her years in Argentina) and her personal contacts with many of the key players in this field.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Scott on February 9, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Sikkink's look at human rights prosecutions (domestic, foreign, and international) is a great way to learn about the effects of such prosecutions. She begins with a historical account of trials that few ever talk about - Greece and Portugal. From there they explains the statistical findings of just how effective human rights trials are and how the idea of prosecutions has spread. She also uses these findings to look closely at how this all effects the United States, which is an important part of the book. All in all a great introduction to human rights prosecutions.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am with the reviewer who read this for a graduate-level law class. If you have a passing, armchair interest in human rights, this might be a good book. But if you are undertaking serious study of this subject, choose something else. The author rambles needlessly, discusses her research trail too much rather than what the research revealed, and referenced far too often her personal friends. Waste of time! Wish I could return the kindle version I bought of this book!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the only book that covers the modern era in human rights litigation on a global basis and does it with clarity and perspective. Just what I was looking for.
