    Palgrave Macmillan 2003; US$ 45.00

    This book invites people to think more deeply about human rights in an attempt to overcome many of the traditional arguments in the human rights literature. Belden Fields argues that human rights should be reconceptualized to combine philosophical, historical, and empirical-practical dimensions. The best way to understand human rights is not as a set... more...

  • The Globalization of Liberalismby Eivind Hovden; Edward Keene

    Palgrave Macmillan 2001; US$ 160.00

    The Globalization of Liberalism demonstrates that liberalism is more deeply embedded in the structure of modern international political and economic order than is usually realised, and that at present there is a contested process of the 'globalization of liberalism'. As well as exploring liberalism's usefulness for understanding how international... more...

  • Escape from Leviathanby Dr J. C. Lester

    Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 160.00

    The principal criticism of libertarianism is that it would damage human welfare. In response, this book considers an extreme libertarian thesis: there is no conceptual or practical clash among the most plausible accounts of economic rationality, interpersonal liberty, human welfare, and private-property anarchy. Eschewing moral advocacy as a distraction,... more...

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2009; US$ 37.75

    Menschenrechte und Menschenrechtsbildung haben als Gegenstand empirischer Forschung bisher kaum Eingang in die akademische Psychologie gefunden.

  • Liberalism and Human Sufferingby Asma Abbas

    Palgrave Macmillan 2010; US$ 105.00

    A materialist critique of the politics, poetics and economics of suffering in liberalism that argues for attention to the labour of suffering of the victim in many well-meaning but flawed politics of redress, and imagines forms of representation, solidarity and justice that better honour the history and materiality of this labour. more...

  • 125 jaar Marxby Sjaak van der Velden

    Amsterdam University Press 2008; US$ 18.75

    Karl Marx overleed in 1883. Zijn naam was tot 1989 verbonden aan regimes die hun achterstand op de westerse wereld probeerden in te halen. Zij koppelden de naam van Marx aan die van hun eigen leiders en claimden het alleenrecht op het marxistische gedachtegoed.Marx had zich echter altijd verzet tegen het gebruik van zijn naam voor een isme. Hij wilde... more...

  • Responsibility Rebornby John Andrews

    MT6 Media 2011; US$ 9.99

    John Andrews’ RESPONSIBILITY REBORN: A Citizen’s Guide to the Next American Century, is perfectly timed as conservatives ask themselves "What next?" after the gains of 2010 and look to the battles of 2012. His theme -- the understanding of individual responsibility, personal freedom and the role of law in protecting both -- has... more...

    Civil Society, Conflicts and the Politicization of Human Rights explores violent conflict and peace.
