Summary
  • "Written largely by Canadian scholars for Canadian students, Human Rights: Current Issues and Controversies is an overview of contemporary human rights concerns that aims to introduce readers to the human rights instruments--provincial, national, and international--that protect Canadians. The volume begins with an overview of the history of human rights before moving on to discuss such important topics as the relationship between political institutions and rights protection, rights issues pertaining to specific communities, and cross-cutting rights issues that affect most or all citizens. Contemporary and comprehensive, Human Rights: Current Issues and Controversies is a valuable resource for undergraduate and graduate students studying human rights."--
