At the dawn of the 21st century, the idea of human rights has become a powerful social construct to fulfill human needs. This revised edition emphasizes the need to create a human rights culture, where public sentiment is in accord with human rights principles, especially those asserted in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed by the U.S. in 1948 and today increasingly referred to as customary international law. The book includes a foreword by David Gill. For additional information on the author, please visit www.humanrightsculture.org.
