The object of this book is to provide teachers and students not only with a textbook dealing with the principal topics in the field of human rights, but also with teaching suggestions, syllabuses, bibliographies, and case studies.
'This book is the nearest there is to a comprehensive textbook on the international law of human rights and is as such a very welcome addition to the bibliography on the subject...All the contributions, although inevitably brief, are admirable for their clarity of expression which has the result that the material is readable and interesting.' British Yearbook of International Law, Volume 56, 1985.
`An excellent source of information and guidance for new lecturers struggling to design a course on human rights.'
