Editorial Reviews

Review

'By establishing a link between normative and empirical analysis, this book offers valuable insights into human rights discourse' International Affairs'This is an accessible and wide ranging text for students. Provides numerous insights on Human Rights and global issues' M S Malloch, Edge Hill University College'Provides a good beginning to a needed conversation.' American Journal of International Law'Important timely and constructive volume...an important step forward. For in highlighting the discourse and the laws surrounding human rights as "transnational juridical processes" (Wilson, p.9). it points the way towards an appreciation of human rights as perhaps the "world's first universal ideology."' Social Anthropology

From the Back Cover

A world characterised by ethno-nationalist struggles, civil wars, and political violence has led anthropologists to examine in more detail the relationships between state violence, ideas about 'culture', and the activities of human rights organisations. The first coherent contextual study of its kind, Human Rights, Culture and Context moves beyond the conventional anthropological dichotomy of universalism versus cultural relativism by considering recent theoretical insights into the politics of identity and by tracing the concrete interconnections created by a globalisation of human rights. Drawing on case studies from around the world - Guatemala, Mauritius, Hawai'i, Iran, the United States and Mexico - this collection documents how trans-national human rights discourses and legal institutions are materialised, imposed, resisted and trans-formed in a variety of contexts. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
