This reference provides a comprehensive survey of human rights in Judaism. It includes both theoretical discussions of the nature and substance of human rights and practical applications of that theory either by Jews or to Jews. While numerous dissertations and audio-visual materials focus on human rights and Judaism, the bibliography is limited to books and articles. The majority of the works have been written in English or Hebrew, but significant studies in other languages, chiefly French and German, have also been included. The volume contains more than 700 citations, each accompanied by a descriptive annotation. The book begins with an introductory essay that examines the basic concerns of the works that follow. The annotated entries are then presented in five chapters. The first chapter includes anthologies, references, and periodicals. The second chapter includes studies of human rights in the Bible and Talmud. The third chapter includes works on Jewish theories of human rights. The fourth chapter, broken down into smaller sections, includes works on Judaism and particular human rights. The fifth chapter contains entries for works on contemporary Judaism and human rights. The volume concludes with author, title, and subject indexes.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In more than 800 entries arranged in five categories, this work makes accessible a wide range of recent theoretical and practical discussions of Judaism and human rights as found in journals and parts of books. The latter are the most valuable since they are the most difficult for readers to locate. Most interesting are the specific units, e.g., rights of minorities, freedom of expression, war and the rights to peace, right to life, privacy. . . . An excellent introductory essay illuminates the basic issues and some of the differing ideological perspectives of Judaism and human rights. Author, title, and subject indexes, as well as numerous cross-references further enhance this very useful reference source. Highly recommended for all libraries."-Choice
