Included are approximately 175 full or excerpted documents---speeches, legislation, magazine and newspaper articles, essays, memoirs, letters, interviews, novels, songs, and works of art---as well as overview information that places each document in context. Entries are organized into chapters that feature a general overview of the chapter's subtopic. The following standard subheads are included in each entry:

"Human and Civil Rights would be a good addition to nearly any library collection. It would be particularly useful in general academic and public libraries for an introduction to the history and development of human and civil rights and as an excellent starting point for more in-depth research."
