From the Inside Flap:

NO ANTHOLOGY LIKE IT "An excellent collection of readings combining traditional Western perspectives on human rights with feminist, multicultural and environmental perspectives. There is no other anthology out there like it." — James P. Sterba, Professor of Philosophy, Fellow of the Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame

MOST EXTENSIVE READER AVAILABLE "This is the most extensive, and far reaching, reader available covering theoretical issues connected with human rights. In Part One, Hayden offers substantial excerpts from the Western tradition of political theory from Plato and Aristotle through Marx and Mill; major contemporary philosophical works by authors ranging from Hart, Cranston, and Feinberg to Nussbaum, Rorty, and Derrida; and a good selection of non-Western sources. That alone would make a fine book. But Part Two provides another three hundred pages of thoughtful theoretical discussions of contemporary issues including relativism, group rights, humanitarian intervention, women's rights, gays and lesbians, and the environment. Each part also has a good selection of basic documents. And the suggested readings provide genuinely helpful direction. The Philosophy of Human Rights is in every way an excellent effort—and a lot of book for the money." —Jack Donnelly, Andrew W. Mellon Professor Graduate School of International Studies, University of Denver
