Michael Ignatieff draws on his extensive experience as a writer and commentator on world affairs to present a penetrating account of the successes, failures, and prospects of the human rights revolution. Since the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, this revolution has brought the world moral progress and broken the nation-state's monopoly on the conduct of international affairs. But it has also faced challenges. Ignatieff argues that human rights activists have rightly drawn criticism from Asia, the Islamic world, and within the West itself for being overambitious and unwilling to accept limits. It is now time, he writes, for activists to embrace a more modest agenda and to reestablish the balance between the rights of states and the rights of citizens.

2008 CBC - Massey Lectures - Payback: Debt & the Shadow Side of Wealth - Margaret Atwood
CBC | Podcast in mp3 format | 5 x 54 minutes | 64 kbps 44100Hz mono | 5 x ~24.5 MB at RS

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's 2008 Massey Lectures in audio book format. Plug on your earphones and take a long, leisurely walk toting your mp3 player as you listen to the legendary novelist, poet, and essayist Margaret Atwood delivering a surprising look at the topic of debt. In her wide-ranging, entertaining, and imaginative approach to the subject, Atwood proposes that debt is like air - something we take for granted until things go wrong. And then, while gasping for breath, we become very interested in it. A fresh perspective in the midst of global financial crisis, indeed!
