Item description for The No-Nonsense Guide to Human Rights (No-Nonsense Guides) by Olivia Ball & Paul Gready...
This No-Nonsense Guide looks at the theories of rights and universalism. It explores the difficult task of trying to protect human rights in war, the advances in international law that have led to some rights abusers facing justice, and the conflicts that can occur when rights collide with culture. While progress is being made in some areas, millions continue to suffer. Now that the world is in the grip of a 'war on terror', are people willing to sacrifice hard-fought rights for so-called security?
