Editorial Reviews


Praise for the first edition:

"A beautifully written and meticulously researched history of the idea of human rights."—American Journal of International Law

"It is difficult to imagine a finer gift on the fiftieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights than this study of the Declaration's complex and far-reaching impact. Paul Gordon Lauren has skillfully combined a detailed history of the legal documents with the political, philosophical, and social context in which they developed."—American Historical Review

"An indispensable reference source for scholars and students of human rights."—Political Science Quarterly

About the Author

Paul Gordon Lauren is Regents Professor at the University of Montana. He is the author of a number of books, including Power and Prejudice. He has lectured widely and delivered invited addresses, at the Smithsonian Institution and the United Nations, on the subject of human rights.
