An International Bill of the Rights of Man. New York: Columbia University Press, 1945. x, 230pp. Reprint available May 2009 by the Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. Hardcover. New.
* From the series Foundations of the Laws of War. This book surveys the written expression of human rights from the time of the Greeks to the present; it argues the legal and philosophical bases for codifying human rights; and finally, it presents a propsed International Bill of Rights of Man, article by article. "Lauterpacht's volume is a penetrating study recalling in its philosophical breadth and historical learning the classical seventeenth century treatises on the subject. It presents much food for juridical thought, perhaps blazing a pathway from the sterility of nineteenth century positivism. The volume maintains a tone of optimism and idealism suggesting that creativeness in legal analysis is not only necessary but also practicable in a world shaken to its foundations by two wars and by revolutionary inventions, such as the airplane, the radio and the atom bomb, during the past generation.": QUincy Wright, Harvard Law Review 58 (1944-1945) 1267-1268.
