Abstract

In the concluding chapter to Binational Human Rights: The U.S.-Mexico Experience, William Paul Simmons, one of the editors, suggests that the book can be read as a “sustained indictment of Mexican and U.S. policies” on a variety of human rights-related issues. This is true. What the reader finds in its ten chapters, along with the introduction and conclusion at either end, is not a staid dialogue among scholars who are carefully weighing the pros and cons of policy initiatives. Rather, the verdict is in, and the contributors to the collection—scholars and practitioners alike—are not bashful about declaring it.
