"This volume brings together a stellar array of interdisciplinary thinkers and leaders to analyze the past, present and future of human rights frameworks in the United States. The result is a wide-ranging status report that outlines successes as well as failures and points toward next steps for those interested in moving beyond exceptionalism to a nuanced and active engagement with human rights. There is much to learn from these thought-provoking contributions, from the role of human rights in post-Katrina politics to the legal status of human rights in the United States to the significance of human rights frames for marginalized populations. It is rare that a single collection provides so many light-bulb moments!"

Co-editor, Bringing Human Rights Home
"The chapters in this volume exhibit a uniformly high quality, and, moreover, span a wide spectrum of human rights....The editors of this volume make and clarify the important link between progressivism and human rights."
-The Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare
This book brings to light emerging evidence of a shift toward a fuller engagement with international human rights norms and their application to domestic policy dilemmas in the United States. The volume offers a rich history, spanning close to three centuries, of the marginalization of human rights discourse in the United States.
