"Decir la Verdad al Poder" presents heroes from over 36
countries, including Baltasar GarzA3n, Desmond Tutu, the Dalai
Lama, Asma Jahangir, and Wangari Maathai. In searing and uplifting
interviews, human rights defender Kerry Kennedy, daughter of Robert
F. Kennedy, examines the quality of courage with people who are
dramatically changing the course of events in their communities and
countries. "Decir la Verdad al Poder" takes the reader to the
frontlines and explores the issues that compel these human rights
defenders: from free expression to religious self-determination,
from minority rights to environmental activism, from child soldiers
to sexual slavery. Accompanying the interviews is a powerfully
moving series of portraits by world-renowned photographer Eddie
Adams. Introduction by award-winning novelist, Carlos Fueuntes, a
special addition to the Spanish edition.
