Review

"A wonderful report. An attempt to bring rationality where emotion tends to dominate."--Simon Jenkins, former editor of the Times (London) "The reports of the New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) have become extremely important. . . . Cogent and eminently practical, these reports have gone far beyond an account of human rights abuses in the country."--Ahmed Rashid, New York Review of Books
