The belief that all human beings are born with inalienable rights has been the cornerstone of many successful, democratic societies. Such rights include the right to life, freedom (of thought, belief, conscience, expression, and movement), and property; others include economic, social, and cultural rights such as safety, health, education, equality, and prosperity; or the right to development. As perspectives on the basic tenets of human rights vary by country and culture, one must question whether these rights are truly inalienable, and whether they are inherent or created.

Human Rights enables readers to understand international standards for human rights, human rights abuses around the world, and the social, economic, and natural causes and effects of such abuses. The history of human rights concepts and declarations of human rights are examined, including the distinction that many historical theories and movements in human rights have made between social groups, namely free men versus women, children, slaves, and immigrants. This new resource goes on to explore human rights positions in the United States, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, China, Chechnya, and Iran. Each case study details the country's historical and cultural perspectives, unique circumstances, current debates and priorities, and efforts to reform and protect human rights.

From the Inside Flap:

This series is a vital resource for students wanting to learn more about important issues from a global perspective, as well as the history that has led up to their present state. Each volume contains three sections, beginning with an introduction that clearly defines the issue by outlining the global challenges involved and providing a brief history of the subject. The second section draws together significant U.S. and international primary source documents. The third section gathers useful research tools—such as brief biographies of key international players, facts and figures, an annotated bibliography, and a list of relevant international organizations and agencies.

This is an important first-stop resource for high school and college students, school and public libraries, and general readers interested in timely, hot-button issues.

·Detailed case studies of the United States and several other countries or regions explore how a certain issue uniquely impacts society, as well as what strategies were formulated in response.
· Primary source documents include excerpts from newspaper articles, speeches, relevant treaties and other legal documents, and scientific reports.

"...an excellent resource for reports...Highly Recommended."
—Library Media Connection, starred review of Immigration and Migration
