||In dealing with the evolution of international human rights law, this essay focuses on the evolution of legal norms and institutional mechanisms for the protection of civil and political rights. Limitations of space did not permit the author to deal with comparable norms and institutions applicable to economic, social, and cultural rights, or with so-called peoples' rights or other emerging substantive and institutional elements of contemporary inter- national human rights law. This essay thus presents only one aspect, or part, of the burgeoning human rights revolution.
