This work is a valuable addition to the literature on the human rights studies in international relations and will therefore be of great interest to those who are involved in this area. Overall, the book can be considered a useful source for international relations students and researchers, and it may also be of interest to scholars, policy-makers and strategists in the United States.-Journal of Human Development and Capabilities The variety of authors-academics, community organizers, graduate students, human rights advocates-makes for interesting and at times quite compelling reading, and the immediacy of many of the topics (unemployment, food security, housing foreclosures) makes for timely, important contemporary reading.-Choice The editors and authors of Human Rights in Our Own Backyard propose to advance our deep understanding of human rights. Even better-they also advance the sort of understanding that will encourage their readers to take action-to lobby, organize, and redirect the path of our communities and the nation... A stunning achievement.-from the Foreword, by Judith Blau An accessible and highly readable collection that pulls together a wide range of information and analyzes it through the lens of sociology. The book makes a significant contribution to emerging lit erature that applies human rights principles to U.S. policy and practice.-Martha F. Davis, Northeastern University
