From the Publisher
"Donnelly examines the evolution of the international human rights regime with attention to the human agency at every level—the individual, the state, and the international system. The analysis of policy decisions that have culminated in action on human rights, or the violation of those rights, is both accessible to the student and true to the complex dynamics of an increasingly interconnected global arena. The attention paid in the fourth edition to specific and contemporary challenges makes this an invaluable book for any introduction to human rights."
—Julie Mazzei, Kent State University
"The fourth edition of International Human Rights is an excellent update of one of the best human rights texts available for the undergraduate classroom. The insightful discussion questions remain at the end of each chapter, but the addition of the problems integrated with the different subject matter allow for a more interactive, in-depth discussion of the material. Including different geographic and substantive examples of human rights issues, this book is well balanced between theory and practice and considers human rights both in different parts of the world and from different cultural perspectives."
—Dana Zartner, University of San Francisco
