With the third edition of The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights: Cases, Materials and Commentary the authors have again succeeded in composing an exhaustive and at the same time concise source of reference for international human rights research. The volume gives a remarkable overview of the broad range of universal civil and political rights and thus facilitates the work of anyone working in this area of law. More generally the book is an excellent starting point for any kind of research in the field of international human rights protection. * Anja Seibert-Fohr and Sahra Golghalyani, Goettingen, ZaoeRV *
Review from previous edition 'a seminal work which will be of enormous interest to the human rights community...' * Commonwealth Lawyer *
... a very useful first stop in finding the basic jurisprudence on the protection of civil and political rights under the treaties adopted under the auspices of the United Nations.' * Urfan Khaliq, Tolley's Communications Law *
... the publication makes a most creditable contribution to systematising and making accessible the work of the Human Rights Committee in the exercise of its various functions ... With its timely collation of the jurisprudence of the Human Rights Committee, it stands alone in the human rights literature. * Australian Year Book of International Law *
The book, all 985 pages of it, is an excellent source of reference. No other work has encompassed as much material and case law so far...the wide range of sources is impressive...Of great value is the subject index... this index is exceptionally good, detailed and clear...the compilation of such incredible amounts of material is a gigantic achievement. The inclusion of good-quality indexes and information tables makes the information readily available and is one of the major assets of the work...The volume is a most-needed and welcome contribution for scholars and practitioners alike. It fulfils its aim of bestowing the legal community with an excellent source of information on international human rights law and will certainly aid in the advancement of human rights protection. * Zeitschrift fur auslandisches oeffentliches Recht und Voelkerrecht (Heidelberg Journal of International Law) *
The authors are to be congratulated for their thoughtful and insightful analysis, and for their meticulous work in continuing to render the work of the Human Rights Committee accessible to a wide audience of civil servants, scholars, practitioners, and activists. * Australian Year Book of International Law *
