Taking a critical view of a venerated international principle, Randall Williams shows how the concept of human rights-often taken for granted as a force for good in the world-corresponds directly with U.S. imperialist aims. Citing internationalists from W. E. B. Du Bois and Frantz Fanon to, more recently, M. Jacqui Alexander and China Mieville, Williams insists on a reckoning of human rights with the violence of colonial modernity.
