"This book is a great addition to human rights, law and society, international and comparative law literature- not only as the bridging point between ethical and empirical realities, but for the practical solutions it offers to the development of a conceptual understanding of human rights."—Sanghamitra Padhy, The Law and Politics Book Review.
"This accessible overview of human rights institutions and current international law dilemmas uses historical, normative, and practical analyses to offer fresh responses to standard critiques. A worthy counterpoint to other recent scholarship, it advances original arguments for conceptualizing and institutionalizing international human rights." —Martha Minow, Harvard University
"This fundamental and timely book responds to the pressing need among international lawyers and human rights advocates for a stronger theoretical foundation to support international human rights law. With its incorporation of both recent and ongoing controversies, it may be expected to have an influence on the actual resolution of existing disagreements." —M.N.S. Sellers, University of Baltimore
"This immensely valuable overview of human rights theory and practice offers imaginative recommendations for further developing institutions, including regional human rights regimes and 'hybrid' courts. Stacy confronts head on the principal challenges to human rights development in the 21st Century and displays an amazing grasp of the diverse roles of international human rights initiatives from both a political and a legal perspective." —Tom Campbell, Charles Sturt University, Australia
