Good Index of Material Don’t be fooled thinking this paperback book will be thin or a “quick read.” This 4″ thick book is a great resource for anyone in the field of human rights, particularly human right law. Many key topics are covered with summaries and notes referencing many law review articles, treaties, UN conference discussions, and cases relevant to international human rights issues legal practitioners face.
