International Human Rights in Context: Law, Politics, Morals by Philip Alston


This widely acclaimed interdisciplinary coursebook presents a diverse range of carefully edited primary and secondary materials alongside extensive text, editorial commentary, and study questions. International Human Rights in Context, Third Edition, thoroughly covers the basic characteristics of international law; evolution of the human rights movement; civil, political, economic, and social rights; the humanitarian laws of war; globalization; self-determination; women's rights; universalism and cultural relativism; intergovernmental and nongovernmental institutions; implementation and enforcement; internal application of human rights norms; and the spread of constitutionalism.
Extensively revised and restructured, this third edition incorporates new themes and topics including human rights in relation to terrorism and national security; responsibility of non-state actors for human rights violations; recent substantial changes in sources and processes of international law; achieved and potential reform within UN human rights institutions; and theories about international organizations and their influence on state behavior. It is also accompanied by a website housing the Annex of Documents.
Its scope, challenging enquiries, and clarity make International Human Rights in Context, Third Edition, an indispensable resource for human rights students, scholars, advocates, and practitioners alike.
