Über den Autor
John S. Gibson, Ph.D., was Professor of Political Science at Tufts University and an Adjunct Professor in the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.
John Gibson, an expert on human rights, discusses the issues and context of rights including the universality of rights, the hierarchy of rights, and conflicts between rights, a discussion that creates the framework for further research. The dictionary entries on the sixty-six rights in international treaties and declarations are divided into five categories: civil and political rights; legal rights; economic, social, and cultural rights; collective rights; and declaratory rights. Each entry contains the treaty definition, other sources and treaties, an expanded definition, historical landmarks in the development of the right, and cross references. Includes an extensive bibliography. An essential, one-of-a-kind reference source for graduate and undergraduate students and professors of law, political science, international relations, and history.
