From the Paper:

"The work "Counting the Dead: The Culture and Politics of Human Rights Activism in Columbia" by Winifred Tate, offers the reader a core sense of the cultural, political divergence of ideologies of Human Rights and stresses that unity is the essential goal as divergence proved disastrous for many and frequently stifled progress in Columbia with regard to Human Rights development. The work is exhaustive in its depiction of the various key figures in the Human Rights movements and stresses the nature of the lives they led but more importantly the ideas they espoused and how those ideas were supported or rejected by others."
