This is an updated edition of the concise yet definitive introduction to the entire range of human rights, from a leading authority in the field. In this new edition of Jack Donnelly's classic text, the author updates his account of human rights issues post World War II, to reflect the new challenges posed by globalization and the war on terrorism. The third edition: focuses on the emergence of non-state actors such as the UN and NGO's; includes two entirely new chapters on the Universality of Human Rights and Terrorism; provides balanced coverage of both the Cold War era and post-Cold War human rights issues; addresses both multilateral international politics and national foreign policies; includes case studies of human rights violations in countries such as Chile, Argentina, South Africa, El Salvador, Nicaragua, China and Bosnia; and, enhances the student's experience with end-of-chapter discussion questions and suggestions for further reading. The result is a wide ranging yet integrated account that captures the latest developments in the field while placing them in the context of the broader historical development of the global human rights regime and enduring theoretical and practical issues. This is the ideal text for all levels of students in international relations, foreign policy, peace studies, international organizations and law.
