    1. The four stars in this review are more for the organization and clarity of Donnelly's ideas and to a lesser extent for the ideas themselves. It works well as an introduction to the validity of human rights, the vocabulary of practitioners and some of the founding documents, particularly, in this case, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations in 1948. The Holocaust, plus the forced relocation of millions and the destruction of the most basic necessities to maintain [...]

    2. Brought up great issues with human rights: humanitarian intervention, concepts of democracy with human rights, "Asian Values," torture, genocide. But I didn't feel it provided a good argument. Anything that did not fit with the "international standard" was simply thrown out the window with no excuse.

    5. A wonderful book for beginner to understand about the idea of human rights, the development of the element of rights after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948, and the debate inside of the discourse. A solid content, and I'm sure once you start, you gonna like it.

    6. Very informative, if a little dry at times. Donnelly has updated the book quite a bit since the original publication, so make sure you have this recent edition!!!Read for English 593: Human Rights Literature and Law

    7. I'm not an avid reader of law or human rights. The reason I picked up this book was for a college research paper. Although it was a very slow read, it proved to be more than useful and I got all the information I needed.

    8. Grad school required reading and a book that never left my side. Best thing about the book? It's human rights IN THEORY *and* PRACTICE. In a policy-oriented program, that was of upmost importance to me.

    9. Also a book I read at uni that proved to be very influential. Considered, thoughtful discussion on the universality of the human rights norm.

    10. Really tough to get through. Not an easy read. I think I have more notes in the margins and underlines than there are words in the book.
