Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for earlier editions:



"Perhaps the most significant contribution to the historiography of human rights. . . . [A] beautiful historical tapestry . . . [in which] colorful threads converge to create complications that only an astute scholar-author could sift through without being lost in analytical mazes or leaving behind bewildered readers."—Human Rights Quarterly



"Beautifully written and meticulously researched history of the idea of human rights. . . . To read in this book how far we have come and how far we still have to go is an inspiration to the activist and a challenge to the idle."—American Journal of International Law



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



"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

About the Author

Purchased as required reading for school but really got more out of it than I expected. The book is written more like a novel than a textbook which made the subject much more entertaining and thought provoking. Great book for anyone interested in the evolution of human rights and it key advocates.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Rita Revolutionary on February 11, 2012
Format: Paperback
I was excited when I registered for my History of Human Rights class. It's too bad this amazingly boring book is the required text. I'm sure professors love it, but for students it sucks. It sucks the life out of every movement and episode in history by reducing them to a lifeless husk of names, dates and places. It is dense with the agencies formed to enforce human rights, but there is so little humanity in this book. I can't wait until this class is over, which is disappointing to me. I've spent hundreds of dollars on a course that I am slogging through, knowing that if I want to renew my interest in this subject I have to stay away from academic classes on this subject.
