This 56th volume of the Studies in Law, Politics, and Society series, edited by Sarat (law and political science, Amherst College), focuses on theoretical and practical issues of human rights. Six contributions discuss a range of topics, including liberalism and the self-alienation of the bodily self in relation to the growth of cell lines, live organ transfer, and practices of "forced prostitution;" the tensions between universalism and particularism and between the "human" and the "political" as desirable paradoxes of human rights discourse; protection of marginal migrants in the international human rights system; child rights claims in relation to female genital cutting practices and user fees for education; migration and the proliferation of "anti-constitutional" ideas such as the criminalization of "defamation of religion," and US legal cases against state and non-state groups for violations of international human rights and humanitarian law in relation to the state action doctrine in international law. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
