Editorial Reviews

Review

`'...not only covers international law in force today, it also provides the best insights into the politics and ideologies underlying legal discourse. The book ignited great classroom discussions.' ' Bruno Simma, University of Munich and University of Michigan

`'Steiner and Alston deploy an extraordinary range of materials to explain the forces that shape the formation and implementation of human rights. Their book is an indispensable tool for training the next generation of human rights practitioners, advocates, and scholars.' ' Theodor Meron, New York University School of Law

`'This book is indeed a most remarkable feat. To winnow so much material, to edit them and organize them within an overarching but not intrusive framework is, I would have thought, the work of many a scholarly lifetime.' ' Upendra Baxi, University of Warwick, formerly Vice Chancellor, University of Delhi

`'A splendid book containing an imaginative and stimulating variety of materials with thought-provoking commentary and questions. It is a wonderful teaching tool, as well as a valuable starting point for research ' ' Hilary Charlesworth, Australian National University

`'By far the best text in the field a wealth of important, interesting, well-organized, and well-edited materials' ' Paolo Carozza, Notre Dame Law School

`'This is the most stimulating book that I know of in the field of human rights' Georges Abi-Saab, Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva ' Georges Abi-Saab, Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva

`'This coursebook exposes the sharp contradictions and vexing dilemmas in the human rights movement, without concessions to political correctness or rushing to answers. Today's debates are openly tackled, letting the students and teachers further contest the issues raised. The book will long remain the yardstick by which others must be judged.' ' Makau wa Mutua, State University of New York at Buffalo

`provides students with a superb overview of the international and regional human rights systems ... a comprehensive and provocative introduction to the theories of human rights' Penelope Matthew, University of Melbourne, in Australian Yearbook of International Law 1997

`"This is an excellant book with massively authoritative coverage of all aspects of international human rights law".' P R Ghandhi, The University of Reading

`"Very thorough, Judicious selection of materials and thought provoking comment".' Robert Cryer, Manchester University

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

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.

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.
