    Rights and Remedies: A Study of Desegregation in Boston.Preston N. Williams & Robin W. Lovin - 1978 - Journal of Religious Ethics 6 (2):137 - 163.
    The authors relate the major groups involved in the desegregation of Boston's public schools to divergent understandings of rights in America's political and religious traditions. After an initial historical review, the authors suggest that the desegregation controversy may be understood as a conflict between a natural law theory of rights which requires remedial action to correct injustices and a traditionalist theory which sanctions prevailing liberties. In Boston, one natural law position is represented by black parents and the Federal court's desegregation (...)

    Human Rights Thinking in Relationship to African Nation-States: Some Suggestions in Response to Simeon O. Ilesanmi.Preston N. Williams - 1995 - Journal of Religious Ethics 23 (2):323-331.
