From ABA Journal Review Traitors and Heroes
Born of Hitler’s savagery is a largely new idea, offering a new hope – that basic human rights are the proper concern of people everywhere. This idea has been central to Martin Garbus’ life as a lawyer. His memoir revisits the sham trials of blacks in South Africa and dissidents in Chile. He has acted in behalf of Sakharov and Shcharansky as well as the lesser-known dissidents and refuseniks resisting Soviet brutalities. Epic struggles are told here – inspiring tales of those who challenge repressive and seemingly impregnable state forces. They are the “traitors” and “heroes” of the book’s title.
