International Law and Human Rights, first published in 1950, is one of the seminal works on international human rights law. Its author, Sir Hersch Lauterpacht, is widely considered to be one of the great international lawyers of the 20th century. It continues to influence those studying and working in international human rights law today. It includes Professor Lauterpacht's philosophical study of human rights, including the role of the individual within the international legal order; his study of natural law and natural rights; a key analysis of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights; and Professor Lauterpacht's own draft Bill of Human Rights. This republication once again makes this book available to scholars and students in the field. It features a new introduction by Professor Philippe Sands, QC, examining the world in which International Law and Human Rights was originally published and the lasting legacy of this classic work.

Description :


A collection of United Nations documents associated with the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, these volumes facilitate research into the scope of, meaning of and intent behind the instrument's provisions. It permits an examination of the various drafts of what became the thirty articles of the Declaration, including one of the earliest documents – a compilation of human rights provisions from national constitutions, organised thematically. The documents are organised chronologically and thorough thematic indexing facilitates research into the origins of specific rights and norms. It is also annotated in order to provide information relating to names, places, events and concepts that might have been familiar in the late 1940s but are today more obscure.

Description :


This book focuses on the fate of human rights outside of the United States and over time. The first two contributions center on the French experience, especially the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen of the French Revolution. The last two evaluate the way that the rights born in the eighteenth century evolved throughout the world during the last two hundred years. Although the articles attempt to characterize human rights, they disagree on how one ought to appreciate these liberties. Those articles on France raise questions regarding rights and suggest that in certain circumstances these freedoms can lead to certain unforseen[sic] difficulties; they argue that the Declaration of the Rights of Man was the final step in solidifying a revolution in which the right to liberty was sacrificed to the right to equality. Confronting this position are the last two essays committed to a belief that in the infinite expansion of rights of all sorts lies the best path to human dignity. Contributors include Philippe Roger, Francois Furet, Ron Malevi, Louis Merkin and Goler Teal Butcher.

Description :


Olympe de Gouges was the most important fighter for women's rights you've never heard of. An activist and writer in revolutionary Paris, she published 'The Declaration of the Rights of Women' in 1791, and was beheaded two years later, her articulate demands for equality proving too much for their time. Over one hundred and fifty years later, the key statements of her declaration were internationally endorsed by the United Nations in its Declaration on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women, which in turn went on to be legally recognized by nearly every country in the world. This volume presents both of these key texts along with enlightening and inspiring commentary from a host of powerful women, from Virginia Woolf to Hillary Clinton.

Description :


(unseen), $12.95. Donnelly explicates and defends an account of human rights as universal rights. Considering the competing claims of the universality, particularity, and relativity of human rights, he argues that the historical contingency and particularity of human rights is completely compatible with a conception of human rights as universal moral rights, and thus does not require the acceptance of claims of cultural relativism. The book moves between theoretical argument and historical practice. Rigorous and tightly-reasoned, material and perspectives from many disciplines are incorporated.

Description :


The essays selected for this volume, written by some of the world?s most respected experts on human rights, encompass the development of human rights law from its philosophical underpinnings and address many of its current controversies. The collected essays explore the drafting of major human rights instruments, including the political challenges that shaped those instruments; examine the interrelationship of various claimed rights; and identify factors producing compliance with - and violation of - human rights law. Other contributions analyze the role of non-governmental organizations in achieving better human rights protections as well as the danger of claiming too many rights, and the tension between rights and security. Contrasting viewpoints in several essays highlight some of the key conflicts in the field. An introductory essay provides a roadmap marking the collection?s major themes, and tracing the relationship between those themes. Taken together, the essays emphasize the legal underpinnings of the human rights regime and as such, the collection provides an essential, wide-ranging account of this important part of international law, procedure and practice.
