Human Rights in History

Back to History - other areas

Editors: Dr Stefan-Ludwig Hoffmann, Professor Samuel Moyn

This series showcases new scholarship exploring the backgrounds of human rights today. With an open-ended chronology and international perspective, the series seeks works attentive to the surprises and contingencies in the historical origins and legacies of human rights ideals and interventions. Books in the series will focus not only on the intellectual antecedents and foundations of human rights, but also on the incorporation of the concept by movements, nation-states, international governance and transnational law.dbooks behavi
