The editors have collected 24 articles defining fundamental human rights and describing varied approaches to their implementation. Introductory essays provide an overview of six main themes that are documented with both bibliographies and filmographies. Each article is also followed by valuable discussion questions. The topics selected demonstrate a progressive concern for economic rights and solidarity rights, with enforcement of political and civil rights by both supranational and national institutions.
