Human rights in AfricaJames T Lawrence February 2004
The existence of human rights helps secure the peace, deter aggression, promote the rule of law, combat crime and corruption, and prevent humanitarian crises. These human rights include freedom from torture, freedom of expression, press freedom, women's rights, children's rights, and the protection of minorities. The book surveys the countries of Africa and is augmented by a current bibliography and useful indexes by subject, title and author.
