Human Rights and the Global Marketplace: Economic, Social and Cultural Dimensions by Jeanne M. Woods, Hope Lewis (pp. 515-524).

Economic, social and cultural rights are socio-economic human rights, such as the right to education, right to housing, right to adequate standard of living, right to health, victims' rights and the right to science and culture. Economic, social and cultural rights are recognised and protected in international and regional human rights instruments.

Special adoption price: $95.00/copy, 10 or more At a time of great change, turmoil, and contradiction in international human rights law and politics, authors Jeanne M. Woods and Hope Lewis have responded to the growing need for a classroom text that focuses squarely on economic, social, and cultural rights--"the neglected step-children of the human rights family"--and their intimate inter-relationship to civil and political rights.Students and instructors will find the results informative and provocative. Intended for use in law school, graduate, and undergraduate survey courses, as well as seminars on human rights, this book will be useful for teachers using both international and comparative approaches. The text is divided into four accessible parts: I. "Human Rights and the Global Marketplace: Discursive Themes" introduces the nature and scope of human rights discourse. II. "International Instruments and Their Implementation" takes students through an array of international and regional human rights treaties that address economic, social, and cultural rights. III. "Power, Politics, and Poverty: Structural Challenges to the Realization of Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights" addresses major controversies in, and barriers to, the realization of socio-economic and cultural rights. IV. "Comparative Approaches" is valuable for international human rights, comparative law, and comparative constitutional law courses. Throughout the book, the authors provide notes, questions, and further reading suggestions to stimulate classroom discussion, debate, and research. The volume also includes valuable appendices, with a bibliography of relevant texts and articles and a selection of NGOs that focus on these issues.

JoJoshura
Human Rights and the Global Marketplace by Woods and Lewis is the work of human rights pioneers. There is a scarcity of serious human rights scholarship that addresses the relationship between the human rights corpus and the world of capital, in effect, the single global market that is the work of the GATT/WTO. This excellent textbook admirably fills that gap, and provides both students and teachers alike with a solid foundation on which to develop an understanding and a critique of power relationships in a geopolitical sense. The book also says to the world that human rights are not just about state despotism. In fact, that is just one half of the equation. Properly understood, human rights are about power and powerlessness, and the struggle to develop a normative and practical framework upon which the contest for human liberation must be waged. Woods and Lewis unravel these questions and present the academy with a pioneering challenge -- to expand the discourse of human rights from its narrow, traditionalist, liberal confines. They ask that we think more robustly about the most pressing challenges today: how do we understand globalization and its effects on poverty and powerlessness. This is a most welcome contribution that is likely to transform the way we teach human rights.

This book is a resource on innovations in human rights that are presently sweeping the globe. In the midst of war, terrorism, torture, and other violations of civil and political rights, the book fouces squarely on the economic and social rights abuses that provide the context for other kinds of violations. It addresses issues - from the right to housing and food to the right to basic health care and public education. It also discusses the conflict between dictates of culture and religion and notions of equlaity and non-discrimination. This is an excellent book for university classes (both undergrad and post-grad) and for general readership as well.

Hope Lewis and Jeanne Woods have done students, teachers, and human rights activists a tremendous service. The book brings together issues as diverse as racial discrimination, culture and women's rights, and the impact of trade agreements on HIV AIDS. It changes the focus of traditional human rights courses from only civil and political violations to economic and social violations that are important under globalization. This is a must buy for anyone interested in contemporary humnan rights. Well worth the investment!
