Ms. Rosenberg, a MacArthur Fellow, lived in Latin America for five

years. Children of Cain: Violence and the Violent in Latin America

is an accumulation of her experiences and research, profiling people

in six Latin American countries, and exploring the circumstances that

lead people to perform violent acts. Ms. Rosenberg includes descriptions of a Maoist guerilla in Peru, a Chilean student leader supporting Pinochet, and an Argentinean interior officer responsible for the death and torture of hundreds. She explained that violence in Latin America is generally planned and accepted by people living in a society governed by power and connections, not by law. She also considered the role of the U.S. in the region. close
