Taking Liberties by Aryeh Neier

Book Description

Since joining the staff of the American Civil Liberties Union in 1963 and becoming its youngest executive director, Aryeh Neier has been at the forefront of efforts to fight for civil liberties, human rights, and social justice. Whether he was confronting police abuse, defending draft opponents or defending free speech, as he did at the ACLU; out-maneuvering the Reagan administration over military abuses in El Salvador, promoting accountability for political crimes in Argentina and Chile or supporting dissidents in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, as he did at Human Rights Watch; or trying to eradicate landmines, promote stability in the Balkans or establish an International Criminal Court, as he has at the Open Society Institute; Aryeh Neier has been methodical, relentless, and unusually successful. In this look back at an amazing career, Neier both reflects on the unintended consequences of some of his victories and why, if he had anticipated them, he might have done things differently; and reveals that some of the various movements of which he was a part had their greatest triumphs under the most adverse circumstances.

International Human Rights Movement by Aryeh Neier International Human Rights Movement, Paperback (August 2013)

During the past several decades, the international human rights movement has had a crucial hand in the struggle against totalitarian regimes, cruelties in wars, and crimes against humanity. This book offers an account of this global force, from its beginnings in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to its essential place in world affairs.

Paradise in Ashes by Aryeh Neier Paradise in Ashes, Paperback (August 2005)

Offers an account of the violence and repression that defined the murderous Guatemalan civil war of the 1980s. Drawing on interviews with peasants, community leaders, guerrillas, and paramilitary forces, the author creates a richly detailed political portrait of Santa Maria Tzeja, where highland Maya peasants seeking land settled in the 1970s.
