This volume traces the history and practice of human rights from ancient times until the present. It identifies major sources and stages of this quest, which has culminated in this century in the unopposed adoption, by the United Nation, of a Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This Declaration is gradually being perceived as customary international law and as a standard by which the policies and practices of different societies ought to be guided and judged.
