Universal Human Rights in Theory and Practice

Front Cover
Cornell University Press, 2003 - Law - 290 pages

In a thoroughly revised second edition of Universal Human Rights in Theory and Practice, Jack Donnelly elaborates a theory of human rights, addresses arguments of cultural relativism, and explores the efficacy of bilateral and multilateral international action. Entirely new chapters address prominent post-Cold War issues including humanitarian intervention, democracy and human rights, "Asian values," group rights, and discrimination against sexual minorities.

"Every once in a while a book appears that treats the leading issues of a subject in such a clear and challenging manner that it becomes central to understanding that subject. Universal Human Rights in Theory and Practice is just such a book. . . . Donnelly's interpretations are clear and argued with zest."—American Political Science Review (reviewing the first edition)
