From the Publisher
"The contributors to this volume have built a sturdy bridge that allows interested readers easy access to the main body of human rights law and practice. As a work of reference, the volume is handsomely edited, readable, and visually attractive. . . . Much more straightforward and readable than Human Rights in Political Transitions, this book merits inclusion in most reference collections on international affairs."
"[T]he book is an excellent source of information on the many facets of human rights. It should be valuable not only for human rights workers and activists but also for teachers, students, journalists, and anyone interested in the subject."
"High school and college students will find this one-volume encyclopedia easy to use because of its logical organization and clear writing. . . . All of the authors write clearly and without emotional overtones. The book's physical appearance is also attractive, with good use of columns and bold type. Most collections will place this resource in the Reference section, but the book as so well written that it will hold interest when read like a textbook."
"Human Rights offers balanced views and useful information on myriad issues about human rights throughout the world during the latter half of the 20th century."
