Featuring twenty chapters written by a multidisciplinary group of international experts, Human Rights: Politics and Practice is the first comprehensive human rights textbook designed for politics students. Offering unparalleled breadth and depth of coverage, it combines discussions of core theoretical approaches with detailed studies of major issues. The first seven chapters introduce the main theoretical issues and challenges in the study of human rights as a political phenomenon: normative foundations, international law, measurement, international relations, comparative politics, sociological and anthropological approaches, and the ideological (mis)use of human rights. Thirteen thematic chapters then offer detailed analysis and case studies of key such key issues as economic globalization, genocide, the environment, and humanitarian intervention.
