What People are Saying About This

William Manchester

Mr. Fowler...provides us with the first lucid, comprehensive analysis of the varied approaches to human rights and achieves the highest goal of a profound writer: he makes us make up our own minds... Thinking About Human Rights, carefully reasoned and splendidly written, is a triumph for the author and a gift to the statesmen of our time. I pray that they grasp it in all its subtlety and force.
