Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A wonderful report. An attempt to bring rationality where emotion tends to domi-nate.”—Simon Jenkins, former editor of The Times of London, speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Start the Week

 

“The reports of the New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) have become extremely important. . . . HRW has documented practically every aspect of the growing crisis in a series of detailed reports which have offered sensible recommendations. Cogent and eminently practical, these reports have gone far beyond an account of human rights abuses in the country.”—Ahmed Rashid in 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 every-one 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. Their annual World Report is the most probing review of human rights developments available anywhere.

 

Written in straightforward, non-technical language, it prioritizes events in the most affected countries during the 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 role—positive or negative—played in each country by key domestic and international actors.

 

Highly anticipated and widely publicized by the US and international press every year, it is an invaluable resource for journalists, diplomats, and now, all world citizens.
