Near Fine. 6" X 9" 402 Pages Indexed. Covers show very minor wear at eges and corners. Interior text pages are As New flawless. This book is about the struggle for social and economic rights, th neglected stepchildren of the human rights movement. Because sociaI and economic rights include the right to health care, housing, clean water, and education, they are sometimes called the rights of the poor. As noted in these pages, debates about the relative merit of one set of rights over another seem arcane outside of the rather insular world of the mainstream human rights community. But to choose to focus, as a physician might, on AIDS and tuberculosis. These are the two leading infectious causes of adult death in the world today. The argument that the afflicted deserve access and care for these ailments is an argument for social and econornic rights. This book looks for good news along with the bad.
