Despite the recent significant surge in concern for the cause of human rights, over half the world's population live under regimes which deny the most basic human freedoms. Drawing on the records of official bodies, unofficial monitors, and individuals who have suffered or witnessed abuses, this survey provides comprehensive information on the human rights records of over 120 countries. Assessing the performance of each state according to guidelines set in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the book covers both traditional human rights, such as democratic elections, freedom of speech, learning, association and travel, and a number of broader issues, including censorship, phone tapping, summary execution and torture, and the independence of the courts. This guide is intended for anyone interested in human rights comparisons world-wide.
