An Eighth Day View:

An invaluable resource for readers seeking to understand how traditional religious ideas and values relate to modern ideas of human rights, how Western models of human rights are perceived in non-Western traditions, and what these traditions may have to offer in the realm of human rights. Together, the authors work to reassess both the rich and diverse resources of the major religious traditions and some of the most challenging problems of the contemporary world. The collection's central theme is the way in which the diversity of religious beliefs and practices -- from Judaism, Christianity, and Islam to Hinduism, Buddhism, and Confucianism -- relates and can come in conflict with the moral universalism implied by the concept of human rights.
