Traces conflicts about the definition of human rights and shows how a series of contradictions worked their way into the International Bill of Human Rights.

Human Rights and Civil Liberties
1. What are human rights and where do they come from?
2. From war and politics to human rights: the Cold War and colonial recession
3. Protecting state sovereignty from the 'dangers' of human rights
4. Saving empire: the attempt to create (non)universal human rights
5. A version of human rights that permits racial discrimination?
6. The United States' unequivocal ambivalence towards socioeconomic rights.
