Dr. Nabeel Yasin, the Iraqi poet, writer, academic and politician, has chosen to discuss Lynn Hunt's Inventing Human Rights: A History , on FiveBooks as one of the top five on his subject - Democracy in Iraq, saying that:

“This book describes the struggle for human rights in Europe. For me the most important thing about this book is that is reminds the people who live in democratic states and societies about how the struggle for human rights started 500 years ago. These modern people are able to enjoy the fruits of that struggle. Iraqi people say we need 500 years to put things right and become properly democratic but they are wrong.”
