Product Description: The first edition of this book set down and examined a field of international human rights law that had barely existed a decade or so earlier. The present edition takes account of 12 years' substantial developments in what has remained a field of dynamic growth in the norms and institutionsavailable to deal with some of the most evil practices that those in power inflict on those subject to their power: torture, enforced disappearance, summary and arbitrary execution, the death penalty, corporal punishment, and wantonly cruel conditions of deprivation of freedom. Important universal instruments that have come into existence since the last edition include the Second UN Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (on abolition of the death penalty), the Body of Principles for the Protection of All Persons Under Any Form of Detentionor Imprisonment, and the Declaration against Forced Disappearance. At the regional level, the creation of the European Convention for the Prevention of Torture has created a Committee with the right to inspect places of detention in 39 Western and Eastern European countries. Landmark cases of the European Court of Human Rights include Soering v. United Kingdom (threatened extradition on a capitally-punishable offence) and a series of decisions against Turkey covering torture, extra-legal execution and enforced disappearance, especially Aksoy, Aydin, Kaya and Kurt. Theinfluential Inter-American Court of Human Rights case, Velasquez Rodriguez, involving the same practices in Honduras, is the most notable of several judgments of that Court. Furthermore, two ad hoc international criminal tribunals have been set up, for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, and they have stimulated the international community to consider establishing a permanent international criminal court, a process that seems on the verge of completion. The Yugoslavtribunal's appellate decisions in the Tadi case have already proved influential. Some of the policy proposals in the General Conclusion of the last edition have already been realised, others remain applicable, and new ones have commended themselves.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
