Human Rights in Europe
Human Rights in Europe
By A. H. Robertson
Manchester University Press, 1977, 329 pp

Europe is unique as a region in which international procedures and mechanisms have been created to ensure the maintenance of fundamental human rights. Professor Robertson, the former Director of Human Rights at the Council of Europe, traces the history of the European Convention on Human Rights and analyzes and evaluates the mechanisms by which these rights are guaranteed. An eminently readable text and source book.
