International Human Rights Summary

International Human Rights by Jack Donnelly (University of Denver, USA)

Fully updated, the sixth edition of International Human Rights examines the ways in which states and other international actors have addressed human rights since the end of World War II.

This unique textbook features substantial attention to theory, history, international and regional institutions, and the role of transnational actors in the protection and promotion of human rights. Its purpose is to explore the difficult and contentious politics of human rights, and how those political dimensions have been addressed at the national, regional, and especially international levels.

Key features include:

  • substantially revised throughout, including new material on LGBTQ rights in Africa, Indigenous peoples' rights in Guatemala, the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar, and a new chapter on human rights and development;
  • in-text features such as discussion questions, suggested readings, case studies, and "problems" to promote classroom discussion and in-depth examination of topics;
  • concise yet clearly organised and comprehensive coverage of the topic.

International Human Rights is essential reading for courses and modules in human rights, politics and international relations, law, criminal justice, sociology, social work, public administration, and international development.

International Human Rights Reviews

"The newest version of this splendid survey of the principles and practice of human rights is an essential reference for human rights pedagogy and scholarship. It is thorough, thoughtful, and comprehensive, providing a wholistic and timely picture of the struggle for human dignity worldwide. The balance between theory, institutions, and coverage of contemporary cases make this book an ideal introduction to human rights."

Alison Brysk, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA

"From its inception, International Human Rights has been the gold standard of human rights textbooks. The 6th edition not only provides an update of human rights practices, but it will also actively engage students in the material - and the world around them."

Mark Gibney, University of North Carolina Asheville, USA
