Format: Paperback
This book contains information about numerous human rights concerns from all around the world. In addition, it contains numerous articles and many documents. It is a wonderful research took that can be used by persons first learning about human rights, as well as by those persons who are working on post-undergraduate degrees

Purchased this book for a graduate level class--it was terrific. The reading was interesting and informative. It gave just enough depth into the cases reviewed.

Format: Paperback
My Professor required this textbook as the main textbook for "International Human Rights Law." The book contains almost everything you would need to have a grasp of current international human rights law, but does not contain enough commentary to help a student truly put all the pieces together and think critically about those pieces. Unfortunately, unless you are reading this book in the context of a law school or graduate level course, you simply cannot use this book to gain a good general grasp of the development of human rights law or thought. However, if you are simply looking to have one book (albeit a very large book) that contains all of the most important cases, writings, treatises, etc., in one location, this is that book.

Don't be fooled thinking this paperback book will be thin or a "quick read." This 4" thick book is a great resource for anyone in the field of human rights, particularly human right law. Many key topics are covered with summaries and notes referencing many law review articles, treaties, UN conference discussions, and cases relevant to international human rights issues legal practitioners face.
