This fourth edition of David P. Forsythe's successful textbook provides an authoritative and timely analysis of the place of human rights in an age of upheaval in international politics. Human rights standards are examined at the global, regional and national levels, with separate chapters on transnational corporations and advocacy groups. Completely updated and revised, the fourth edition takes account of new sources and recent scholarship, as well as recent events, such as the Syrian war, the rise of ISIS, refugee flows, South Sudan crises, and the resurgence of nationalism. A new chapter has been added on the media and human rights, covering both traditional and social media. Examining attempts to protect human rights by various actors, such as the United Nations, the European Union, transnational corporations, and the media, the book stresses that the open-ended fate of universal human rights depends on human agency in this context. Containing further reading suggestions and discussion questions, this textbook is a vital resource for courses on human rights in an international context.

'A thoughtful, comprehensive, and timely treatment of the urgent issues of human rights framed solidly in the tradition of international relations. Forsythe's text is an outstanding introduction and essential reference on world politics and the fate of liberal values.' Alison Brysk, University of California, Santa Barbara

'Forsythe continues his mission to clarify and update via an impressive, illuminating and engaging analysis of one of the most powerful political impulses of the contemporary era.' Ramesh Thakur, Australian National University

'David Forsythe's Human Rights in International Relations maintains his reputation for excellence. I have found the [previous] editions to be essential teaching texts, very popular with my students, without which I could not cover the entire range of topics necessary in a comprehensive political science course on human rights.' Rhoda E. Howard-Hassmann, Wilfrid Laurier University, Ontario
