Central to any discussion of the present status of the idea of human rights in the United Kingdom is the incorporation of the European Convention of Human Rights. Incorporation has widespread support, and such support should be accompanied by informed debate. In this stimulating collection of essays, contributors such as Lord Bingham, Lord Lester QC, Andrew Marr of The Independent, and Ronald Dworkin, the highly respected legal theorist, present their arguments in favour of incorporation. The expression of their informed opinions and points of view results in a lively and readable book.
