This volume joins one monograph-length study and three articles on less-or-more related aspects of international concern with human rights. Domínguez's effort to build a comprehensive index for assessing human rights, based on Lasswell-Kaplan value categories, is imaginative and instructive but probably less useful for international monitoring than the author hopes. Rodley describes and prescribes for the NGO network. Wood discusses human rights issues in Latin America with emphasis on "security, development and repression." Falk is skeptical about how much can be done for human rights short of a drastically altered world-order system. All are sensitive to the now common preoccupation with the relation between human rights and needs. All contribute to understanding and dialogue. All leave lots more to be said.
