What a tour de force … readable, accessible, and analytically rigorous … As the world commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, this timely book provides a teachable review of some of the most pressing human rights topics from interdisciplinary perspectives. It is strategically designed to enable readers to act on their sense of justice to move toward fairer horizons.
Its approach is likely to engage an audience that goes beyond the usual suspects – lawyerly and academic circles. Highly recommended.
In this essential book Dr. Chen and Dr. Renteln provide a much needed overview of humanity's first normative line of defense against repression … in an age of brutality, but also of hope and opportunity.
