About the Author:

Robert L. Maddex is an attorney specializing in international law who serves as an advisor on constitutional procedures and issues. He is the author of Congressional Quarterly's Constitutions of the World, Illustrated Dictionary of Constitutional Concepts, and State Constitutions of the United States.

From Booklist:

This latest in a variety of books on human rights issues that also includes Encyclopedia of Human Rights Issues Since 1945^B (Langley, 1999)^B and^B Human Rights in the United States: A Dictionary and Documents [RBB Fe 1 01] is by far the easiest to read and the simplest to interpret.

Beginning its coverage with the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the volume includes definitions of more than 150 important concepts, such as Asylum, Civil rights, and Sovereignty; entries on decisions of national and international bodies; descriptions of well over 100 documents (including some significant historical statements, such as the Magna Carta); information about agencies and organizations involved in human rights; and biographies of some of key individuals, from Aristotle to Guatemalan activist Rigoberta Menchu. The introduction includes a complete alphabetical list of the topics followed by a list of entries by category, such as "Biographies" or "Documents." Also included is a key to the symbols used in the entries to identify such information as telephone numbers, fax numbers, e-mail addresses, Web sites addresses, and citations to documents, court decisions, further readings, and related entries.

The publisher has provided an extensive index and a typeface that is inviting to look at and easy to read. The volume succeeds in making human-rights issues more understandable for the average person and in maintaining an evenhanded look at the issues. This exceptional book is well organized and well written and should be useful for academic, public, and high-school libraries. RBB

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2000. Hardback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. The global importance of human rights issues has sparked an ongoing need to develop a universal language for human rights and the procedures for remedying violations, where remedies are, in fact, available. Giving the broadest scope to the terms human rights and freedoms, this reference encompasses constitutional rights and freedoms as well as those addressed in international and regional agreements. Through entries that define and describe concepts and terms, to text excerpts of documents, charts depicting global comparisons, essays on organizations, and biographies of activists and theorists, this reference will serve the research and information needs of students, scholars, activists, and interested citizens. As the title suggests, International Encyclopedia of Human Rights: Freedoms, Abuses, and Remedies goes beyond the abstract to include practical information on remedies for violations of a person s rights and freedoms by a national government, and on the private and government rights organizations that assist in reporting on or enforcing human rights. All around the world, there is a growing interest in developing a universal language for human rights and the procedures for remedying violations. International Encyclopedia of Human Rights: Freedoms, Abuses, and Remedies is written for both students of the subject and those who are actively working in the field. This reference work points readers in the right direction for enforcing their rights rather than merely setting them forth in the abstract. Seller Inventory # FLT9781568024905
