From the Publisher"Jack Mahoney has produced an account of human rights that speaksdirectly to contemporary audiences. It dodges none of the hardquestions and its defence of human rights rings true as a result.It is a scholarly but also an intellectually exciting read."Conor Gearty, London School of Economics and PoliticalScience
“Mahoney's text is excellent; it makes complicated issuesaccessible without lapsing into oversimplification. This is nosmall achievement and makes the text especially well-suited toundergraduate teaching. The range of issues covered is surprisinglycomprehensive yet by no means superficial. The combination ofphilosophy and history is a major virtue.” Maurice Wade,Trinity College
"Mahoney carefully surveys and discusses the various attempts toexplain human rights in order to formulate a single, compelling,logical proof for their existence."
America, The National Catholic Weekly
"This book may be useful as an introduction to the concept ofhuman rights." Journal of Peace Research
