Joseph & McBeth: Research Handbook on International Human Rights Law

Sarah Joseph (Monash Univ. - Law) & Adam McBeth (Monash Univ. - Law) have published Research Handbook on International Human Rights Law (Edward Elgar Publishing 2010). The table of contents is here. Here's the abstract:
This innovative and timely Handbook brings together the work of 25 leading human rights scholars from all over the world to consider a broad range of human rights topics. The book discusses a wide range of contemporary themes, for example jurisdictional issues, such as human rights in the private sphere and extra-territorial obligations. It also deals with global and regional human rights systems, intersections with other areas of international law and practice, such as international criminal law and globalisation, and specific human rights topics including terrorism and indigenous peoples.
