Note "If the sheer number of references to human rights in media headlines or government statements is of any guidance, human rights concerns now appear virtually at the center of the framework of the norms, principles, and obligations that shape relations within the international community both among and within states. That political journey began, perhaps arbitrarily, on 10 December, 1948, when the United Nations General Assembly established the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), which advocated that - regardless of race, religion or nationality, all people in the world are entitled to the human rights and fundamental freedoms. This Historical Dictionary of Human Rights covers the history of the Human Rights movement through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has more than 1000 cross-referenced entries on terminology, conventions, treaties, intergovernmental UN organizations, pioneers and defenders of human rights, and the constantly expanding universe of nongovernmental organizations. This book is an excellent reference for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about the topic"-- Provided by publisher
