Summary
"Based on the Oxford Amnesty Lectures, this book asks why people commit human rights abuses, and whether and how such abuses can be prevented. It consists of essays by eight leading writers and thinkers." "Many contemporary issues in human rights are addressed, including the ethics of military intervention, the representation of atrocity in photojournalism, the relationship between activists and victims, and the possibilities for reconciliation in the aftermath of wrong-doing." "Linked by Nicholas Owen's introduction, these essays aim to promote action as well as understanding in support of human rights."--Jacket
