This book provides a comprehensive introduction to contemporary thought about rights. It examines what it is to have a right and what is distinctive about political moralities that give a fundamental place to rights. The varied grounds and implications of claiming rights to liberties, socio-economic rights and democratic rights are considered and the book concludes with an examination of the theoretical objections and the practical difficulties that proponents of rights have to confront.
