Read in January, 2004

I assign this when I teach Human Rights Law and Politics. A good, thorough but fairly atheoretical telling of the tale of how international law has advanced and confronted the worst kinds of human rights violations. Robertson writes in a tone of deep moral outrage but also with a great deal of snark and dry humor (which keeps undergraduates engaged, e ven as when it annoys them...)
