This UNESCO project, billed as a legal treatise, is made up of a series of separate contributions by legal experts of many nations from the First, Second and Third Worlds. It contains an immense amount of useful material on the growth of human rights law and on how international and regional institutions, national governments and eminent jurists have tried to define and apply it.
