M.E. Sharpe, 1993 - 288 pàgines
This volume emerges from three annual conferences (1989-91) of The Soviet-U.S. Dialogue on Human Rights and the Future, sponsored by the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) and the Russian Academy of Sciences through the Institute of State and Law. Following a preface by ACLS coordinators Bertram Gross and Peter Juviler and a preface by Soviet co-coordinator Elena Lukasheva, the volume is divided into three sections: the ex-USSR--endings and beginnings; the US--progress and regress; and toward the 21st century. A remarkable look at the obstacles and opportunities to surmount ideology in the pursuit of human rights--made particularly striking by the concurrent revolutionary events in the Soviet Union. Paper edition (110-2), $19.95. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
