Review:

". . . a compelling historical account of natural rights. . . .That Tierney brings to his historical task a thorough acquaintance with major contemporary theories of moral and legal rights gives his work additional value for ethicists." -- Religious Studies Review Vol. 24 No. 2, April 1998

". . . a tour de force of integration and learning. . . . It is a synthesis that will become the required starting point in all future efforts to write about the history of rights." -- Studia canonica 32, 1998
