Women’s Human Rights: A Social Psychological Perspective on Resistance, Liberation, and Justice by Shelly Grabe
Requirements: .PDF reader, 10mb
Overview: At a United Nations conference in 1995, 189 governments adopted the Beijing Platform for Action, an international agenda for women’s equality and a statement of women’s rights as human rights. Since that time, violations of women’s human rights have become a widely-documented problem across many academic disciplines, international organizations, and activist social movements. Nevertheless, violations against women occur unabated despite widespread commitments internationally to draw increased attention to women’s experiences. Given that a focus on women’s rights was first put forth two decades ago, the question remains: why do egregious violations of women’s rights continue?

Edited by Shelly Grabe, Women’s Human Rights: A Social Psychological Perspective on Resistance, Liberation, and Justice contributes to the discussion of why women’s human rights warrants increased focus in the context of globalization and how psychology can provide the currently missing, but necessary, links between transnational feminism and the discourse on women’s human rights and neoliberalism. This volume takes a radically different approach to women’s human rights by turning its attention to a variety of disciplines and, as a result, develops new ideas regarding how psychology can be relevant in the study or actualization of women’s human rights. By doing so, it makes it very clear for readers as to how activist scholarship can make a unique contribution to the defense of women’s rights.

Rather than using examples that have been sensationalized throughout academia and advocacy (i.e. genital mutilation), each of this book’s contributing authors has used examples (rape, sexual orientation, homelessness, civic participation, violence) of specific human rights violations that occur the world over in their attempt to make the relevance of psychology to this topic more visible to the reader.

Download The Storm of the Century by Al Roker (.ePUB)

The Storm of the Century: Tragedy, Heroism, Survival, and the Epic True Story of America’s Deadliest Natural Disaster by Al Roker
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.5 MB
Overview: In this gripping narrative history, the beloved NBC weather personality vividly brings to life the Great Gulf Hurricane of 1900, the deadliest natural disaster in American history.

On the afternoon of September 8, 1900, 200-mile-per-hour winds and fifteen-foot waves slammed into Galveston, the prosperous and growing port city on Texas’s Gulf Coast. By dawn the next day, when the storm had passed, the city that existed just hours before was gone. Shattered, grief-stricken survivors emerged to witness a level of destruction never before seen: 8,000 corpses littered the streets and were buried under the massive wreckage. Rushing water had lifted buildings from their foundations, smashing them into pieces, while intensive winds had upended girders and trestles, driving them through house walls and into sidewalks. In less than twenty-four hours, one storm destroyed a major American metropolis—and awakened a nation to the terrifying power of nature.

The Storm of the Century brings this legendary disaster and its aftermath into brilliant focus. No other natural disaster has ever matched the havoc caused by the awesome mix of winds, rains, and flooding that devastated this bustling metropolis and shocked a young, optimistic nation on the cusp of modernity. Exploring the impact of the disaster on a rising nation’s confidence—the pain and trauma of the loss and the determination of the response—Al Roker illuminates both the energy and the limitations of the American Century, and of nature itself.

Download Cultural Backlash by Pippa Norris, Ronald Inglehart (.PDF)

Cultural Backlash: Trump, Brexit, and Authoritarian Populism by Pippa Norris, Ronald Inglehart
Requirements: .PDF reader, 5 MB
Overview: Authoritarian populist parties have advanced in many countries, and entered government in states as diverse as Austria, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and Switzerland. Even small parties can still shift the policy agenda, as demonstrated by UKIP’s role in catalyzing Brexit. Drawing on new evidence, this book advances a general theory why the silent revolution in values triggered a backlash fuelling support for authoritarian-populist parties and leaders in the US and Europe. The conclusion highlights the dangers of this development and what could be done to mitigate the risks to liberal democracy.

Download Journey through Utopia by Marie Louise Berneri (.ePUB)

Journey through Utopia: A Critical Examination of Imagined Worlds in Western Literature (Freedom) by Marie Louise Berneri
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.0 MB
Overview: Journey through Utopia is a richly detailed and critically compelling examination of utopian literature, beginning with Plato’s Republic and continuing through to Huxley’s Brave New World. Utopias have been penned with diverse intentions: some as pictures of an ideal society, some as blueprints for action, some, especially in times of severe censorship, as covert criticisms of existing conditions. Marie Louise Berneri exposes the dark shadow that lingers above most utopian works by emphasizing the intolerant and authoritarian nature of these visions, warning of the doom that awaits those foolish enough to put their trust in an ordered and regimented world. Journey through Utopia is a necessary companion, and in many cases an antidote, to imagined fictions from antiquity to the present.

Download The Subject’s Point of View by Katalin Farkas (.ePUB)

The Subject’s Point of View by Katalin Farkas
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 16 MB
Overview: Descartes’s philosophy has had a considerable influence on the modern conception of the mind, but many think that this influence has been largely negative. The main project of The Subject’s Point of View is to argue that discarding certain elements of the Cartesian conception would be much more difficult than critics seem to allow, since it is tied to our understanding of basic notions, including the criteria for what makes someone a person, or one of us.

The crucial feature of the Cartesian view defended here is not dualism – which is not adopted – but internalism. Internalism is opposed to the widely accepted externalist thesis, which states that some mental features constitutively depend on certain features of our physical and social environment. In contrast, this book defends the minority internalist view, which holds that the mind is autonomous, and though it is obviously affected by the environment, this influence is merely contingent and does not delimit what is thinkable in principle. Defenders of the externalist view often present their theory as the most thoroughgoing criticism of the Cartesian conception of the mind; Katalin Farkas offers a defence of an uncompromising internalist Cartesian conception.
