Reviews

A monumental achievement: profoundly personal, told with love, anger and great precisionEngrossing . . . Sands has written a remarkable and enjoyable book, deftly weaving his own family history into a lively account of the travails of the early campaigners for international human rights law - LITERARY REVIEWA vivid and readable contribution, part memoir, part documentary, to the history debate ... Much of the most compelling material in this book is personal ... Moving and powerful - FINANCIAL TIMESIn a triumph of astonishing research, Sands has brilliantly woven together several family stories which lead to the great denouement at the Nuremberg tribunal. No novel could possibly match such an important work of truthA narrative to my knowledge unprecedented . . . We have in Sands's EAST WEST STREET a machine of power and beauty that should not be ignored by anyone - NEW YORK TIMESDazzling, shatttering. East West Street is one of the most extraordinary books that I have ever read.
