International Law and Human Rights
International Law and Human Rights
By H. Lauterpacht
Praeger, 1950, 475 pp

An important book, by a professor of international law at Cambridge University, on the vital question of safeguarding individual rights through international measures. After investigating the doctrine that the individual, despite the claims of the state, may be a subject of international rights and duties, he examines and criticizes the status of human rights under the U. N. Charter and advances the principles of an International Bill of Rights.
