9780415925136: Human Rights Horizons: The Pursuit of Justice in a Globalizing World

In Human Rights Horizons, one of the world's foremost authorities on human rights and international relations maps out the way to a more just and human global society. Borders are being erased; democracy and capitalism are spreading.  The world is rapidly changing, and these changes are opening the door for the promotion of human rights to become and integral part of worldwide politics and law.In his provocative new book, Falk discusses the borderline between the promotion of human rights and the promotion of interventionist and coercive diplomacy. Can the US and the UN find an acceptable balance between unnecessary, protracted violence (Somalia) and simply letting genocide spread (Rwanda)? While looking at specific cases, Falk also sheds important new light on non-Western attitudes toward human rights, the challenge of genocidal politics, the intersection of morality and global security, and the pursuit of international justice. Thoughtful and very accessibly written,  Human Rights Horizons clearly presents a path to an original new humanitarian policy for the 21st century.

Review:

"Richard Falk boldly confronts, with careful analysis and nuanced judgements, the most important issue of our time--constructing a global morality to overcome the self-serving policies of powerful states. He challenges the smug calculations of the 'realists' whose ideas have been disastrous in this past century, and makes thoughtful suggestions based on his firm humanitarian sensibility."
-Howard Zinn, author of "A People's History of the United States
"For almost half a century, Richard Falk has insisted that we examine international politics and development through the prism of ethics and morality. This demand has shaped his vision of human dignity and animates all his efforts, including the present volume, to articulate a truly global conception of human rights. "Human Rights Horizons chides, challenges, sometimes angers, but above all inspires."
-Michael Reisman, Yale Law School, and author of "Laws of War
"For three decades now there has been no more important or interesting mapmaker for global politics based on humanitarian morality than Richard Falk. This book again demonstrates why."
-Ken Booth, E.H. Carr Professor of International Politics, University of Wales, Aberystwyth
"Falk presents another significant contribution with this overview of roughly a half century of human rights politics related to international organizations, law, and diplomacy....He combines a thoughtful, historical critique of the human rights movement with a farsighted, imaginative view of the future."
-"Choice
"Richard Falk provides a compelling review of the development of human rights during the 20th Century. He imaginatively and objectively assesses the implications for thecoming decades. This is essential reading for anyone concerned about national and international human rights in the coming globalized and politically re-aligned world."
-Justice Richard Goldstone, former prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and for Rwanda
