We had the experience but missed the meaning.
- T.S. Eliot
Jim Zirin's new book The Mother Court is "a story engagingly, articulately and above all lovingly told".
Beheadings in Syria, military trials in Guantanamo, rising Antisemitism in Europe, a dysfunctional immigration policy, we live in a world pervaded with grave challenges in human rights. Elisa Massimino, President and CEO of Human Rights First, a non-governmental organization, tells Jim of gains over the past year, and of serious setbacks as well.
