9780813345017: International Human Rights (Dilemmas in World Politics)

International Human Rights studies the ways in which states and other international actors have addressed human rights since the end of World War II. This unique textbook features substantial attention to the domestic politics of human rights, as well as an extensive emphasis on theory.

The fourth edition is substantially rewritten and reorganized to enhance usability, with new material is added to bring the text up to date. The sections covering multilateral, bilateral, and transnational action have been broken into seven short chapters, and new case studies provide context and points of comparison. Additionally, nine "problems" have been added to the text, which along with the chapter-ending discussion questions, frame alternative interpretations, highlight controversies, and ultimately aim to provoke further thought and discussion.

From the Back Cover:

Donnelly examines the evolution of the international human rights regime with attention to the human agency at every levelthe individual, the state, and the international system. The analysis of policy decisions that have culminated in action on human rights, or the violation of those rights, is both accessible to the student and true to the complex dynamics of an increasingly interconnected global arena. The attention paid in the fourth edition to specific and contemporary challenges makes this an invaluable book for any introduction to human rights. Julie Mazzei, Kent State University
The fourth edition of International Human Rights is an excellent update of one of the best human rights texts available for the undergraduate classroom. The insightful discussion questions remain at the end of each chapter, but the addition of the problems integrated with the different subject matter allow for a more interactive, in-depth discussion of the material. Including different geographic and substantive examples of human rights issues, this book is well balanced between theory and practice and considers human rights both in different parts of the world and from different cultural perspectives. Dana Zartner, University of San Francisco
