Be sure to check out this great interview with Steven L. B. Jensen about his recent book, The Making of International Human Rights: The 1960s, Decolonization, and the Reconstruction of Global Values (2016). The interview, conducted by Aden Knaap, includes a very thoughtful reflection about the state of the historiography. It's well worth your time to read.
