Pena Irala contains the table of contents, acknowledgments, preface, foreword, information about the author and list of abbreviations. In recent years, victims of human rights abuses have filed civil lawsuits in U.S. courts. This litigation provides victims a voice and promotes accountability for violations of international law. This is the story of Filartiga v. Pena-Irala, one of the most significant examples of human rights litigation in the U.S., presented as a documentary history, an approach to legal scholarship that has become increasingly popular in recent years.
