In Human Rights and Their Limits (Cambridge University Press), Wiktor Osiatynski examines how the concept of human rights has developed in waves: each call for rights serves the purpose of social groups that try to stop further proliferation of rights after their own goals are reached.Although a state of unlimited democracy threatens rights, excessive rights can limit resources indispensable for democracy.
