Review quote

The most stimulating book that I know of in the field of human rights. Georges Abi-Saab, Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva ...it is clearly and accessibly written and provides an excellent balance between commentary and analysis. The Student Law Journal ... imaginative and stimulating materials with thought-provoking commentary... a wonderful teaching tool, as well as a valuable starting point for research. Hilary Charlesworth, Australian National Universityshow more
