This third edition of David P. Forsythe's successful textbook provides an authoritative overview of the place of human rights in an age of upheaval in international politics. Human rights standards are examined at the global, regional and national levels, with separate chapters on transnational corporations and advocacy groups. The third edition has been completely updated to include the latest developments on terrorism and counter-terrorism, pro-democracy protests in the Middle East, disputed elections in developing countries, criminal courts and truth commissions, and applications of the laws of war. New sections have been added on subjects such as women's rights and new case studies have been added in each chapter which show how specific rights fare in contemporary political contexts. Containing chapter-by-chapter guides to further reading and discussion questions, this book will be of interest to all students of human rights and their teachers.
David P. Forsythe is Emeritus Professor at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, where he was Charles J. Mach Distinguished Professor of Political Science. He is the author of numerous International Relations titles, including The Humanitarians: The International Committee of the Red Cross (2005). He is the general editor of Encyclopedia of Human Rights (2009, five vols.), which won the Dartmouth Medal as the best reference work published in the United States that year.
