The International Human Rights Movement: A History - Human Rights and Crimes against Humanity (Paperback)Aryeh Neier (author)
- Coming soon
A fascinating history of the international human rights movement as seen by one of its founders
During the past several decades, the international human rights movement has had a crucial hand in struggles against totalitarian regimes and crimes against humanity. Today, it grapples with the war against terror and subsequent abuses of government power. In The International Human Rights Movement, Aryeh Neier-a leading figure and a founder of the contemporary movement-offers a comprehensive, authoritative account of this global force, from its beginnings in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to its essential place in world affairs today. Neier combines analysis with personal experience, and gives an insider's perspective on the movement's goals, the disputes about its mission, its rise to international importance, and the challenges to come. This updated edition includes a new preface by the author.
