"The book is well-written and will appeal mostly to professional scholars of human righs and Asia and to laypersons with a keen interest in those topics." Choice
This book makes a major contribution to the theory and practice of human rights, engaging in particular with the 'Asian values' debate. It is especially concerned with the tension between a universal regime of human rights and its ability to accommodate diversity. Incorporating original fieldwork from Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, the book also draws out the significance of Southeast Asian developments for international human rights discourse. This book is likely to become a definitive account of political discussions of human rights in Southeast Asia and an important contribution to the development of human rights theory.
