Summary
"Human Rights: Concepts, Contests, Contingencies brings together essays that attend to both the allure and criticism of human rights. They examine contestation and contingency in today's human rights politics and help us rethink some of the basic concepts of human rights." "In exploring a crucial and timely topic, this additional volume in the Amherst Series in Law, Jurisprudence, and Social Thought will enlighten the reader to the social and intellectual currents surrounding human rights."--Jacket
