The Four Freedoms of the First Amendment: A Textbook

The Four Freedoms of the First Amendment: A Textbook Lowest new price: $34.98
Lowest used price: $8.48
List price: $33.95
Author: Craig R. Smith
Brand: Brand: Waveland Press, Inc.

The First Amendment grants the freedoms of religion, speech, press, and assembly-freedoms to do something-and protection from government intrusion. After setting the historical context for the First Amendment, the book explores the issues that center around those freedoms. Should we pledge our allegiance to one nation, under God? Can we express our opinions when they are harmful to others? Do all groups have the right to assemble peaceably? Should the Internet be regulated? The book is a springboard for a thoughtful and informed look into our rights. The issue chapters conclude with hypothetical cases, inviting readers to become advocates on differing sides of the case and to perform the duties of a Supreme Court justice. From explanations of the landmark cases to outlines of potential future conflicts, this text involves the reader with the vital task of identifying and preserving the four freedoms of the First Amendment.

Author: Michael B. Likosky
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

From attacks on oil infrastructure in post-war reconstruction Iraq to the laying of gas pipelines in the Amazon Rainforest through indigenous community villages, infrastructure projects are sites of intense human rights struggles. Many state and non-state actors have proposed solutions for handling human rights problems in the context of specific infrastructure projects. Solutions have been admired for being lofty in principle; however, they have been judged wanting in practice. This book analyzes how human rights are handled in varied contexts and then assesses the feasibility of a common international institutional solution under the auspices of the United Nations to the alleged problem of the inability to translate human rights into practice.

Human Rights for the 21st Century: Sovereignty, Civil Society, Culture (Stanford Studies in Human Rights)

Human Rights for the 21st Century: Sovereignty, Civil Society, Culture (Stanford Studies in Human Rights) Lowest new price: $18.58
Lowest used price: $1.25
List price: $22.95
Author: Helen M. Stacy
Brand: Helen M Stacy

A new moral, ethical, and legal framework is needed for international human rights law. Never in human history has there been such an elaborate international system for human rights, yet from massive disasters, such as the Darfur genocide, to everyday tragedies, such as female genital mutilation, human rights abuses continue at an alarming rate. As the world population increases and global trade brings new wealth as well as new problems, international law can and should respond better to those who live in fear of violence, neglect, or harm. Modern critiques global human rights fall into three categories: sovereignty, culture, and civil society. These are not new problems, but have long been debated as part of the legal philosophical tradition. Taking lessons from tradition and recasting them in contemporary light, Helen Stacy proposes new approaches to fill the gaps in current approaches: relational sovereignty, reciprocal adjudication, and regional human rights. She forcefully argues that law and courts must play a vital role in forging a better human rights vision in the future.

Among the musicians were Bud Powell, JJ Johnson, Duke Ellington, Nina Simone, and Johnny Richards. Important social issues dominated several trials, detailed in this book. Ultimately, the musicians and entertainers won. The author writes from personal experience, since he was attorney for the musicians, the entertainers, and the Citizen's Committee.

Trauma and Memory: Reading, Healing, and Making Law (Cultural Sitings)

Trauma and Memory: Reading, Healing, and Making Law (Cultural Sitings) Lowest new price: $35.77
Lowest used price: $21.01
List price: $62.50
Brand: Austin Sarat

Trauma and Memory explores different dimensions of trauma, both its relationship to the social sphere and to group identity, in order to open up new approaches to trauma from a healing perspective. The book's specific focus is doubly unique: first, because of its interest in the tension between collective and individual trauma (in trauma as socially constructed and related to identities of ethnicity, nationality, gender, and class); and second, because of its interest in the legal and medical professions (in their construction of trauma, their ways of treating it, their failures, and even their production of trauma). Trauma and Memory reflects the ways in which, over the last several decades, a growing interest in the social and cultural contexts of law and medicine has transformed the study of both these professions. The authors provide new readings of social and political phenomena―such as immigration, public health, gender discrimination, and transitional justice―in terms of trauma. Finally, they address the therapeutic dimensions of trauma and their relationship to reconciliation via alternative processes such as mediation, truth committees, and other new forms of justice.
