Human Rights and the Borders of Suffering: The Promotion of Human Rights in International Politics

Human Rights and the Borders of Suffering: The Promotion of Human Rights in International Politics by M. Anne Brown
English | Oct. 11, 2002 | ISBN: 0719061059 | 241 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

This book argues for a more open approach to human rights and international rights promotion, and in so doing brings some new understandings to old debates. Starting with the realities of abuse rather than the liberal architectures of rights, it casts human rights as a language for probing the political dimensions of suffering. Three case studies are explored – the Tiananmen Square massacre, East Timor’s violent modern history, and the circumstances of Indigenous Australians.

English | Mar. 1, 2017 | ISBN: 0472130315 | 346 Pages | PDF | 6 MB

Western music reached China nearly four centuries ago, with the arrival of Christian missionaries, yet only within the last century has Chinese music absorbed its influence. As China and the West demonstrates, the emergence of “Westernized” music from China—concurrent with the technological advances that have made global culture widely accessible—has not established a prominent presence in the West.
Democratic Experiments: Problematizing Nanotechnology and Democracy in Europe and the United States (Inside Technology)

Democratic Experiments: Problematizing Nanotechnology and Democracy in Europe and the United States (Inside Technology) by Brice Laurent
English | May 5, 2017 | ISBN: 0262035766 | 285 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

In Democratic Experiments, Brice Laurent discusses the challenges that emerging technologies create for democracy today. He focuses on nanotechnology and its attendant problems, proposing nanotechnology as a lens through which to understand contemporary democracy in both theory and practice. Arguing that democracy is at stake where nanotechnology is defined as a problem, Laurent examines the sites where nanotechnology is discussed and debated by scientists, policymakers, and citizens. It is at these sites where the joint production of nanotechnology and the democratic order can be observed.
