A magisterial book 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.

The most important book to appear so far on the consequences of the vicious cycle of terror and violence that enveloped Argentina in the 1970s.
