Atlas of Human Rights - Andrew Fagan
Call Number: Electronic book available on CREDO Reference (click the cover)
ISBN: 9780520261235
Publication Date: 2010-08-02
In the post-9/11 world, governments are using the threat of terrorism to justify tightening national security and restricting basic human rights. This timely book addresses the implications of this trend, revealing human rights inequities from nation to nation and the consequences of these inequities worldwide. Inspired by the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Andrew Fagan considers the nature of the state, national identity, and citizenship. His comprehensive and succinct text explores judicial violations and legal restrictions that permit state-sponsored torture, indefinite detention, capital punishment, and police brutality. Vividly illustrated with colorful maps and charts, The Atlas of Human Rights charts both the progress and limitation of free expression and media censorship. It displays the areas that are beset with wars, conflict, migration, and genocide; details the geographic status of sexual freedom, racism, religious freedom, and the rights of the disabled; focuses on women's rights, sex slavery, and the rights of the child. As intolerance threatens diversity on a global scale, The Atlas of Human Rights serves as a crucial intervention to preserving and extending freedom.

The Last Utopia - Samuel Moyn; J. Andrew; A. M. Elizabeth; Kahan Jeffrey
Call Number: Electronic book available on Ebrary (click the cover)
ISBN: 9780674048720
Publication Date: 2010-09-15
Human rights offer a vision of international justice that today's idealistic millions hold dear. Yet the very concept on which the movement is based became familiar only a few decades ago when it profoundly reshaped our hopes for an improved humanity. In this pioneering book, Samuel Moyn elevates that extraordinary transformation to center stage and asks what it reveals about the ideals troubled present and uncertain future. For some, human rights stretch back to the dawn of Western civilization, the age of the American and French Revolutions, or the post World War II moment when the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was framed. Revisiting these episodes in a dramatic tour of humanity's moral history, The Last Utopia shows that it was in the decade after 1968 that human rights began to make sense to broad communities of people as the proper cause of justice.
