This is an important contribution to current debates in political and legal theory by a writer who is noted as much for his contribution to practical politics (the establishment of a system of human rights in his native Argentina) as he is for his contribution to scholarship. Thus, though it offers a detailed and broad-ranging discussion at a theoretical level this book is not merely concerned with the philosophical foundations of human rights; it also takes a series of valuable steps forward in helping us to understand the part which a principled system of human rights can play in the good ordering of society. This illuminating study is suitable for students as well as scholars of human rights, political theory, and jurisprudence.
