Synopsis: The notion that all people have certain rights, simply by virtue of being human, is a defining issue at the center of human history, and the struggle to define and achieve these rights remains an important issue today. This book traces the history of that struggle, from 3,000 B.C. (the first evidence of slavery in southern Mesopotamia) to 2002, when the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the constitutionality of drug testing of student athletes.

From Booklist: This chronological history of human rights documents thousands of human rights struggles and violations from as early as 3,000 B.C.E. to 2002. The chronology is arranged in nine chapters covering topics such as "Civil Rights," "Children's Rights," "Gay Rights," and "Refugee Rights." Editor Levinson, a cultural anthropologist, is author or editor of more than 30 books, including the Encyclopedia of Cultural Anthropology (Holt, 1996), the award-winning Encyclopedia of World Cultures (G. K. Hall, 1996), and The Encyclopedia of Human Emotions (Macmillan, 1999).

Within each chapter, events are arranged year-by-year and described in entries that average around six lines in length. When warranted, events are recorded in multiple sections; for example, the papal bull of 1484 and related events in 1486, condemning the spread of witchcraft in Germany, are under both "Women's Rights" and "Religious Rights." As with any chronology, content is not exhaustive. The "Indigenous Rights" section begins in 1492 with Columbus' voyage to the New World although human rights violations against the indigenous peoples began long before 1492. For example, the Japanese began a campaign against the indigenous Ainu almost 600 years before Columbus landed on the island of San Salvador (Guanahani). There is no mention of the Ainu until 1984, in an entry that references their conquest in the ninth century.

Despite any missing content, the chronology is copious, well arranged, and extensively indexed. The 82-page subject index lists general topics, personal names, organization names, and places. A 65-item bibliography includes books, journals, Web sites, and organizations.

Magill's Great Events from History II: Human Rights Series (Salem, 1992) is similar in concept but has a scope of 1900 to 1991. The Wilson Chronology of Human Rights is recommended for academic and public libraries. RBB
