HUMAN RIGHTS

Towards a Global Values System

By Denise R. Ames. Investigating human rights from a global and historical perspective, this informative resource makes the case that human rights are the foundation of a global values system. Six chapters provide an overview of human rights categories and characteristics, then explore the movements and abuses that have shaped the fight for human rights throughout history. Included are explorations of social movements (including women's suffrage, the environment, and civil rights), case studies of violations and abuses (as in Rwanda, Armenia, Darfur, and Cambodia), profiles of activists (like Iran's Shirin Ebadi, Guatemala's Rigoberta Menchu, and the Dalai Lama), and an overview of human rights campaigns in progress today. Grades 9–12. Index. Glossary. Source notes. 8" x 10". Center for Global Awareness. 215 pages. ©2016.globalissues
