Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A wonderful report. An attempt to bring rationality where emotion tends to dominate.”—Simon Jenkins, former editor of The Times (London)

“The reports of the New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) have become extremely important. . . . Cogent and eminently practical, these reports have gone far beyond an account of human rights abuses in the country.”—Ahmed Rashid, The New York Review of Books

“When Human Rights Watch, a respected organization that has been monitoring the world’s behavior since 1978, focuses its annual review on America’s use of torture and inhumane treatment, every American should feel a sense of shame. And everyone who has believed in the United States as the staunchest protector of human rights in history should be worried.”—International Herald Tribune

Human Rights Watch is increasingly recognized as the world’s leader in building a stronger human rights culture. Its annual World Report is the most probing review of human rights developments available anywhere.

Written in straightforward, non-technical language, it describes events around the world during the past year. The backbone of the report consists of a series of concise overviews of the most pressing human rights issues in countries from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, with particular focus on the roles—positive or negative—played in each country by key domestic and international figures.

Highly anticipated and widely publicized by the US and international press every year, the World Report is an invaluable resource for journalists, diplomats, and citizens.
