The first edition of this book set down and examined a field of international human rights law that had barely existed a decade or so earlier. This edition takes account of 12 years of substantial developments in what has remained a field of dynamic growth in the norms and institutions available to deal with some of the most evil practices that those in power inflict on those subject to their power: torture, enforced disappearance, summary and arbitrary execution, the death penalty, corporal punishment, and wantonly cruel conditions of deprivation of freedom.;Important universal instruments that have come into existence since the last edition include the Second UN Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (on abolition of the death penalty), the Body of Principles for the Protection of All Persons Under Any Form of Detention or Imprisonment, and the Declaration against Forced Disappearance. At the regional level, the creation of the European Convention for the Prevention of Torture has created a Committee with the right to inspect places of detention in 39 Western and Eastern European countries.;The book is intended for academic lawyers, political scientists, officials responsible for the administration of justice, senior police, staff of human rights organizations and some practitioners
