"A magisterial work on a great subject. This is a book everyone should read."--Susan Sontag "A major work that deserves to stand among the very best accounts of state terror and those who had the strength and luck to survive it."--Foreign Affairs "Feitlowitz writes with a fearful grace and subdued eloquence; [this is] a work of a literary art in the analytical literature...but [the book] goes much further--and here is her originality and genius."--Edward Peters, Human Rights Review "Ms. Feitlowitz does an excellent job of combining moving, personal accounts of the Dirty War with insightful glimpses into the complexity of current events in Argentina."--Dr. Jose Miguel Vivanco, Executive Director, Human Rights Watch/Americas "The most important book to appear so far on the consequences of the vicious cycle of terror and violence the enveloped Argentina in the 1970s... the wealth of empathy and understanding, the depth of knowledge and the intensity of the scholarship that Feitlowitz brings to this book will enrich everyone who cares about Argentina." - Buenos Aires Herald
