In this illuminating book Sarah Snyder explains the origins of the human rights movement in the 1960s and chronicles its evolution until the inauguration of Jimmy Carter. Linking the evolution of human rights to other social movements, she probes the motives, highlights the transnational connections, and analyzes the successes and failures of activists regarding human rights violations inside the Soviet Union, Southern Rhodesia, Greece, South Korea, and Chile. This book is an important contribution to the literature on human rights. (Melvyn Leffler, Edward Stettinius Professor of American History, University of Virginia)
In this impressive and deeply researched work, Sarah Snyder reveals the way global struggles over human rights became a feature of American politics and foreign policy in the 1960s and 70s as activists, journalists, and Congress members made the case that the United States was complicit if the country ignored brutal repression. An important contribution. (Mary L. Dudziak, Emory University School of Law)
Based on deep and thorough archival research, as well as an innovative and creative use of quantitative measures, Snyder’s book demonstrates that issues of human rights emerged as a significant priority for many Americans, both political leaders and activists, well before the Carter administration. From Selma to Moscow is an extremely important contribution to what remains one of the most important challenges in American foreign policy. (Thomas Schwartz, Vanderbilt University)
Human rights is emerging as one of the central concerns of modern humanities and social science scholarship. From Selma to Moscow illuminates the missing links between histories of the 1940s and the 1970s, the focus of previous studies. Sarah Snyder’s globe-spanning tale of activists and policy makers reveals the significance of the 1960s for bringing human rights to the forefront of U.S. foreign relations. An important book from an excellent historian. (Tim Borstelmann, University of Nebraska–Lincoln)
