Product Description:

Children of Cain Award-winning journalist Tina Rosenberg spent five years in Latin America--drinking coffee with hit men and sunbathing with death-squad financiers--to understand people for whom violence is a way of life. Her six vivid and haunting portraits illuminate the human face of violence, not only in Latin America, but all over the world. Full description

Review:

"Rosenberg presents vivid portraits of the people 'who made cruelty possible' in Colombia, Argentina, Chile, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Peru. Through them she succeeds in making the grisly and fleeting headlines from those places understandable.'
The New York Times Book Review

"There is perhaps no more succinct and authoritative account of . . . pivotal events in recent Latin American history. There is certainly no better-written and more riveting account."
The Washington Post Book World

"Rosenberg . . . provides sharp analysis and history. . . . This is an important book. Rosenberg asks all sides for answers, ad braves real physical danger, and retains a healthy incredultiy and sense of humor."
Newsday

"It is Rosenberg's intelligent eye, her sense of the absurd, her unfailing courage and perseverance, and most important, her empathy and compassion that bring Children of Cain to life and start to lead North American readers down the hard path toward understanding Latin America."
Los Angeles Times Book Review
