oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - Human rights law in Africa 1996, Christof Heyns (Ed.)
Human rights law in Africa 1997, Christof Heyns (Ed.) : book review
The two books under review are respectively volumes 1 and 2 of Kluwer Law International's Human rights law in Africa series. The aims of the series appear from the editor's introduction to the first volume (at viii). In the main they are to provide a 'comprehensive - yet up to date - guide' on the 'legal position as far as human rights in particular African countries are concerned'; and with time to include 'commentary on legislation, judicial decisions and executive action in the field of human rights', together with 'some general information on the countries in question'. Judging from the volumes at hand, the project is on track.
