The Future of Human Rights: U.S. Policy for a New Era

JAMA. 2009;301(1):106. doi:10.1001/jama.2008.906

The theme of this book is “how the pursuit of human rights by the United States [can] be dissociated from a neoconservative program now largely discredited in the world's eyes” (p 10). The chapters that follow explore this theme as it applies to terrorism; the rule of law; humanitarian intervention; sanctions; democracy promotion; international cooperation; economic, social, and cultural rights; trade and human rights; workers' rights; women's rights; religious repression; and the organization of the federal government.
