Human Rights and Global Diversity

Edited By Simon Caney, Peter Jones Copyright 2001

    This examination of global society focuses on its conflict with local societies and questions whether the human race should be treated as belonging to a single global community. It considers the universality of human rights and its conflict with group claims to self-determination.
