This book provides ready access to the basic and most influential human rights documents. With the exception of the UN Charter, some protocols, and the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, all texts are complete and unabridged. While knowing the rules does not assure the elimination of human rights violations, the more they are known, the more likely they can protect those in greatest need.
