Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2014 Reviews of the German edition: "In an elegant and very readable way, Fabian Klose combines three topics in his work: the origins of the international human rights regime, decolonization, and the unchecked use of force. . . . A superbly readable depiction of the subject and chock-full of sources."-Wolfgang Buttner, sehepunkte "A major contribution to the study of areas in decolonization history that have been largely unexplored until now, namely the role of human rights discourse and the unchecked use of force. . . . Using copious sources, including those from several previously unused archival collections, [Klose] has succeeded in advancing research on the history of violence and human rights in decolonization a good deal."-Jan Eckel, Archiv fur Sozialgeschichte online "The originality of [Klose's] approach lies in placing the radicalization of colonial violence by both colonial powers, Great Britain and France, in the context of the international human rights regime that emerged after the Second World War. . . . In all, Klose has made a substantial contribution to decolonization research."-Andreas Eckert, Historische Zeitschrift "Hard-hitting and heroically researched in a vast number of far-flung archives, Human Rights in the Shadow of Colonial Violence asks what post-World War II international norms meant on the ground for states fighting counterinsurgencies on behalf of settler colonialism."-Samuel Moyn, Columbia University
