An International Bill of the Rights of Man, first published in 1945, is one of the seminal works on international human rights law. Its author, Sir Hersch Lauterpacht, is widely considered to be one of the great international lawyers of the 20th century.

It continues to influence those studying and working in international human rights law today. It includes Professor Lauterpacht's philosophical study of human rights, including the role of the individual within the international legal order; his study of natural law and natural rights; a key analysis of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights; and Professor Lauterpacht's own draft Bill of Human Rights.

This re-issue once again makes the book available to scholars and students in the field. It features a new introduction by Professor Philippe Sands, QC, examining the world in which the book was originally published and the lasting legacy of this classic work.
