Review from previous edition ... a valuable overview of the law and practice governing remedies ... urges litigants to show greater attention to their requests for remedies - a task that will unquestionably be far more feasible with the publication of this book. .. the book is a valuable resource. Indeed, because of Shelton's comprehensive approach and her important, well-documented conclusions, the book will undoubtedly change the international discourse on the problem of providing remedies for human rights violations.
