Product Overview

Human rights activists Roger Normand and Sarah Zaidi provide a broadpolitical history of the emergence and development of the human rights movement inthe 20th century through the crucible of the United Nations, focusing on the hopesand expectations, concrete power struggles, national rivalries, and bureaucraticpolitics that molded the international system of human rights law. The bookemphasizes the period before and after the creation of the UN, when human rightsideas and proposals were shaped and transformed by the hard-edged realities of powerpolitics and bureaucratic imperatives. It also analyzes the expansion of the humanrights framework in response to demands for equitable development afterdecolonization and organized efforts by women, minorities, and other disadvantagedgroups to secure international recognition of their rights.
