The Politics of Human Rights

Edited by Paula R. Newberg

New York University Press, 1981, 256 pp.

Papers on a dozen different aspects of the role of human rights in U.S. foreign policy, originally done for a UNA-USA policy panel and here published in expanded form. As the editor acknowledges, writing on human rights has become a minor growth industry, yet these authors find some new things to say both on the fundamental relationships of individuals and governments and on the practical decisions of foreign policy.
