How and why has solidarity changed over time? Why have different strategies, tactics, and strands of international solidarity emerged or re-emerged at particular moments throughout history? And how has the concept of solidarity shaped the history of the US left in particular?
            In Solidarity, Steve Striffler addresses all these questions, offering the first history of US–Latin American solidarity from the Haitian Revolution to the present. Striffler traces the history of internationalism through the Cold War, exploring the rise of human rights—and later, labor issues—as the dominant currents of international solidarity. He also considers the limitations of today’s solidarity movement, which inherited its organizational infrastructure from the human rights tradition.
            Moving beyond conventionally ahistorical analyses of solidarity, Striffler provides a distinctive intervention in the history of progressive politics in both the United States and Latin America.
