Human Rights and Comparative Politics
Dartmouth Publishing, 1997 - 246 pages
Human rights is a central concept in political science, yet it is still poorly understood. This book reviews the literature on human rights and takes into account the different perceptions, asking if human rights can be measured and whether countries can be ranked on the basis of their performance.
