Critical Human Rights

Steve J. Stern and Scott Straus, Series Editors

Interdisciplinary in nature, Critical Human Rights publishes empirically grounded and theoretically innovative work. The series emphasizes research that opens new ways to conceptualize and examine human rights. Books in the Critical Human Rights series transcend simplified accounts of perpetrators and victims, resist triumphalist narratives, emphasize the importance of local perception, incorporate socioeconomic rights, and anticipate human rights problems of the future.

Please direct queries simultaneously to Steve J. Stern, Scott Straus, and UW Press Editorial Director Gwen Walker.
