Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a world facing the growing challenges of globalized apartheid and pandemic poverty, human rights will determine the future of every one of us and our sustainability as a species. This book allows us at least to reclaim our hope in that future.”—Roger Clark, former secretary general of Amnesty International

“An excellent roadmap for navigating the labyrinthian challenges posed by globalization. It should be used by human rights activists and students alike.”—Micheline Ishay, author of The History of Human Rights: From Ancient Times to the Era of Globalization

“This eloquent call for the future of human rights and a just world order is a must read.”—Dr. Upendra Baxi, University of Warwick

Much more than a simple “guide to global human rights,” this book is an urgently needed and sophisticated reflection on the vital nature of human rights in the twenty-first century. Daniel Fischlin and Martha Nandorfy argue convincingly that, when the environment, health, water, and food are more at risk than ever before, human rights must become the tangible expression of an “all-encompassing respect for life."

Synopsis:

Lays the groundwork for understanding issues relating to global rights across a wide range of topics.
