Summary

"This second edition of Historical Dictionary of Human Rights and Humanitarian Organizations thoroughly revises the first edition, following major developments in human rights, including recent terrorism and international responses to it; the establishment of an international criminal court; the evolution of regional human rights bodies in Africa, Europe, and Latin America; and the proliferation of new nongovernmental organizations and foundations dedicated to the promotion of human rights worldwide. Robert F. Gorman and Edward S. Mihalkanin provide a chronology, an introduction, appendixes, photographs, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries covering key treaties, agreements, and definitions of human rights concepts; important humanitarian organizations - private, governmental, national, and international; and significant people and events.

This assessment of the advances in protection of human rights and the extant major difficulties is an excellent tool for students, practitioners, and libraries."--BOOK JACKET.
