`Review from previous edition '... a valuable overview of the law and practice governing remedies ... urges litigants to show greater attention to their requests for remedies-a task that will unquestionably be far more feasible with the publication of this book ... a valuable resource. Indeed, because of Shelton's comprehensive approach and her important, well-documented conclusions, the book will undoubtedly change the international discourse on the problem of providing remedies for human rights violations.' ' The American Journal of International Law `'...the greatest strength of this book lies in its ability to digest a hugely disparate range of remedial jurisprudence and present it in a fashion that is not only accessible, but which is of such detail as to be most useful to academics, practitioners, and students.' ' Chris Blegy, Cambridge Law Journal `'...will be of great interest to anyone, practitioners and academics alike, with an interest in human rights law...' ' International and Comparative Law Quarterly
