From their perspectives of historian and novelist, Thomas Wright and Douglas Unger discuss how the current human rights movement in the Middle East and the international reaction to it have their roots in the politics of Central and South America during the 1970s and 1980s. Events such as the 1973 Chilean coup d'état and the Argentinean "dirty war" have had a profound impact on international relations, activist groups such as Amnesty International, and the arts.
