Walters provides an excellent historical overview of human rights in the Western tradition and delineates the global context of human rights in the twentieth century. The scope of English language works included ranges from 1982 to 1994, and the bibliography avoids using specific rights as the main organizational principle. Instead, Chapter One begins with key encyclopedia resources and entries, dictionaries, anthologies, readers, and textbooks useful for teaching at the college or university level. Remaining chapters include: the Philosophical Foundations of Human Rights; Cultural Relativism and Cross-Cultural Perspectives; Human Rights and Religious Traditions; Basic Human Needs, Development, and Security; Human Rights and Foreign Policy; International Law, Organization, and Human Rights; Group Rights and Individual Rights; Women and Human Rights; Emerging Human Rights issues ; Teaching Human Rights and Genocide; and Researching Human Rights. Author, subject, and geographical indexes provide the researcher with ready access to articles published in collections, to specific rights, to human rights ideas and institutions, and continent and country-specific human rights concerns and analyses. Appendixes: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Bill of Rights and Responsibilities for the Electronic Community of Learners. This bibliography is indispensable for students, activists, and general readers, and scholars seeking key human rights resources across an immense range of material drawn from many disciplines.
