Format: Paperback

In Britain and parts of the Western World, human rights has become a dirty word - a catch-all term applied to 'big government' legislation, criminals with compensation claims, and those seeking to extend their own power. But it does not look that way to people in Syria, Tibet, Iran, Saudi Arabia and many other countries where citizens find their human rights infringed in horrific ways on a daily basis.

Ivan Fiser is a legal expert who has been at the forefront of human rights advocacy around the globe for over twenty years. He draws on this experience, plus recent events and theoretical advances, to create this robust and stimulating introduction to human rights. It will appeal to students of law and politics, as well as anyone who is concerned about the basic rights of themselves and others.
