Synopses & Reviews
This study examines and analyzes human rights issues from a comparative perspective. As the concept of universal human rights gains increasing acceptance in the international community, it has come into conflict with formulations of human rights existing in different cultures and legal systems of the world. An attempt is made in this study to provide a comprehensive understanding of patterns of human rights values and violations extant in various societies. Chapters incorporated in this manuscript will include topics relevant to both international relations and comparative politics.
