Editorial Reviews

Review

Richard Falk boldly confronts, with careful analysis and nuanced judgements, the most important issue of our time--constructing a global morality to overcome the self-serving policies of powerful states. He challenges the smug calculations of the 'realists' whose ideas have been disastrous in this past century, and makes thoughtful suggestions based on his firm humanitarian sensibility. -- Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States
For almost half a century, Richard Falk has insisted that we examine international politics and development through the prism of ethics and morality. This demand has shaped his vision of human dignity and animates all his efforts, including the present volume, to articulate a truly global conception of human rights. Human Rights Horizons chides, challenges, sometimes angers, but above all inspires. -- Michael Reisman, Yale Law School, and author of Laws of War
For three decades now there has been no more important or interesting mapmaker for global politics based on humanitarian morality than Richard Falk. This book again demonstrates why. -- Ken Booth, E.H. Carr Professor of International Politics, University of Wales, Aberystwyth
Richard Falk provides a compelling review of the development of human rights during the 20th Century. He imaginatively and objectively assesses the implications for the coming decades. This is essential reading for anyone concerned about national and international human rights in the coming globalized and politically re-aligned world. -- Justice Richard Goldstone, former prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and for Rwanda
For three decades now there has been no more important or interesting mapmaker for global politics based on humanitarian morality than Richard Falk. This book again demonstrates why. -- Ken Booth, E.H. Carr Professor of International Politics, University of Wales, Aberystwyth
Falk presents another significant contribution with this overview of roughly a half century of human rights politics related to international organizations, law, and diplomacy...He combines a thoughtful, historical critique of the human rights movement with a farsighted, imaginative view of the future. -- Choice
The strength of this book stems from Falk's willingness to address issues of justice, economic globalization, international law, and human rights in a complex way...Falk covers considerable ground as he demonstrates the interconnectedness between global economic regimes and international political policies. -- ARC
