'Looking at the concept of democracy and human rights, the author provides a detailed examination of a little discussed perspective on not only development, but also non-Western approaches to international law.' Common Law World Review '... provides a significant intellectual spark for those in search of critical insight into a somewhat neglected topic of academic discourse. This well written, and exhaustively researched, resource is a must for all teachers and librarians whose role is to ensure completeness of coverage in their respective domains.' American Society of International Law 'Important reading for members of social movements who hopefully will be inspired to create their own narrative about reshaping international law from below.'
