Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we inform you that Richard Pierre Claude, a
renowned human rights activist and educator, has won the "Best Book Award,
2003" from the Human Rights Section of the American Political Science
Association (APSA) for his book "Science in the Service of Human Rights."
This book uses a human rights framework in exploring ethical questions
abounding in the field of modern science, including health and medical
ethics, information technologies and statistics. Moreover, in his book
Professor Claude strongly supports the role of education and training in
promoting human rights among scientists and scientific methods among
activists. The book can be ordered on the Web at

Rights" is available in HREA's on-line Library:
