    Book details

Truly global in coverage, the third edition of Textbook on International Human Rights provides a concise introduction for newcomers to the subject. Beginning with a brief analysis of the development of international human rights and the history of the subject, the text allows full consideration of the work of the UN before turning in more detail to regional systems of human rights, focusing on Europe, the Americas and Africa. The second half of the book looks at a variety of substantive rights ranging from the right to liberty to the right to work and the right to education, with illustrations from both regional and international law.

The strength of the The Textbook on Interntational Human Rights lies in its clarity and broad scope, with the focus on making the subject easily accessible to those with little or no prior knowledge of the subject. The author guides students through the complexities of each topic before providing a wealth of recommendations for further reading, essential cases and useful websites at the end of each chapter.

Textbook on International Human Rights continues to be relied on by students worldwide as the first book to turn to for clear, accurate coverage and guidance for further research.

    Bomb dot com. Approaches with a very simple overview with great examples.

    I had bought this book, hoping to be able to use it to study for a human rights exam. This book is not only extremely difficult and boring to read, but it is very repetitive. There are many superfluous words and sentences, about how well certain human rights organs are doing, but no detail as to how they are making progress. Very little substance, too many unnecessary words. The book could be easily half of its length and I have had to purchase another book as I am certain this one is inadequate. It is also extremely over priced for what it has to offer.
