Series 1, Number 6 (Fall 1996): The Human Rights Discourse in East Asia: Reports from the Region

While major internationally-oriented literature on human rights is widely available, the discourse going on within nations is often difficult to access and understand. This is because writings are unavailable outside certain countries, or written in a language other than English, or because the context of the writings is difficult to know. This volume provides a selection of writings from Burma, South Korea, China, Cambodia, Malaysia, Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Taiwan which, according to intellectuals and activists from these countries, are considered to be the most influential or representative of the current human rights dialogue.
