Since the proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, rights have become the dominant language of the public good around the globe. This revolution is being watched around the world. Are group rights to land and language jeopardizing individual rights? When everyone asserts their rights, what happens to responsibilities? Michael Ignatieff confronts these questions head-on in The Rights Revolution, defending the supposed individualism of rights language against all comers.
