Beschreibung:

Human Rights - International conflict - Peace - Cultural conflict - Rights and the arts - Social justice - Academic journalism - Historical commentary
Constituted of a range of essays, the present volume addresses a variety of contemporary and historical events from human rights perspectives. Taking on issues from the American presidential election to North Korean missile tests to terrorism and «civilizational» conflict to Cold War history, the current collection seeks to speak plainly by combining academic convention with a «feuilleton» style. Aimed at students and the public as much as other academics, the essays in this book seek to make rights concepts concrete by speaking to the issues through which they become salient: international conflict, social justice problems and the historical scenes that ask us to realize all human beings' equality and dignity - an equality and dignity this book seeks to promote.
