A MAIN POLITICAL AGENDA ITEM FOR THE CURRENT UK PARLIAMENT:
HUMAN RIGHTS BRILLIANTLY EXPLAINED BY MICHAEL GOODHART

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

Author Michael Goodhart dedicates the third edition of his book “Human Rights: Politics and Practice” for “people everywhere engaged in struggles for their rights” and he is spot on because this statement neatly sums up the importance and relevance of this textbook for the remainder of our 2015-2020 Westminster Parliament.

There are 23 chapters in the textbook written by various contributors with a substantial knowledge of every aspect and main theme of human rights law together with an excellent link to the OUP’s Online Resource Centre. The Centre keeps readers up to date with developments in what remains one of the central issues of the current Parliament linked, as it must be with the decision to leave the European Union.

Goodhart’s work is primarily a textbook, but it is also a very good read for the general public looking for more information about how our system of human rights actually works. The author meets his main communication objective brilliantly which is to help readers “understand not simply the facts about human rights, but also the deeper legal, historical, philosophical, and conceptual issues that make them so problematic and so indispensable politically”.

This title remains the foremost work for students as we face a most uncertain future after Britain’s decision to leave the European Union and all that follows this dramatic constitutional change.

We have no doubt that another edition will appear before long as the changes we see unfolding within the United Kingdom take place. Love human rights, or loath them, this book gives probably one of the fairest and most balanced statements of where we are today with the subject matter whilst we await huge change since the legislation was first enacted at the turn of the century. Thank you, Michael Goodhart.

The publication date is 2016.
