This anthology is an exciting and vibrant contribution to the ongoing debate about international human rights. Drawn largely from materials published in the Fifteenth Anniversary issue of Society magazine, but incorporating outside essays as well, the editor has assembled a collection of articles written by noted scholars and policymakers.
The articles approach the theme of human rights from a variety of perspectives, including the United Nations and nongovernmental organizations, children's rights, media coverage of human rights conflicts, and the interplay between human rights and world resources. Specific essays focus on Soviet Jewish emigration, foreign nationals and American law, and terrorism. General pieces discuss the nature and prospects of human rights in a changing international context.
