Check It Out

December 2016 is Human Rights Awareness Month.

Did you know in the Library’s collections there's a great title honoring this theme to check out? 

Human rights : the hard questions
Editors: Cindy Holder and David Reidy
Cambridge University Press, 2013. 
Main Library Stacks Collection: Call Number: JC571 .H84 2013

This book provides a discussion of human rights from theoretical and philosophical viewpoints. The editors chose essays written by distinguished philosophers, political scientists, international lawyers, environmentalists, and anthropologists. Examples of questions they debate include: What do human rights require of the global economy?; Does it make sense to secure them by force?; Is global climate change a human rights issue?; and Is there a human right to democracy?

Come to the library to see more Human Rights Awareness-related titles on display this month.
