From the early days of the antislavery movement, when political action by women was frowned upon, British and American women were tireless and uncompromising campaigners. Without their efforts, emancipation would have taken much longer. And the commitment of today's women, who fight against human trafficking and child slavery, descends directly from that of the early female activists. Speak a Word for Freedom: Women against Slavery tells the story of fourteen of these women. Meet Alice Seeley Harris, the British missionary whose graphic photographs of mutilated Congolese rubber slaves in 1904 galvanized a nation; Hadijatou Mani, the woman from Niger who successfully sued her own government in 2008 for failing to protect her from slavery, as well as Elizabeth Freeman, Elizabeth Heyrick, Ellen Craft, Harriet Tubman, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Frances Anne Kemble, Kathleen Simon, Fredericka Martin, Timea Nagy, Micheline Slattery, Sheila Roseau and Nina Smith. With photographs, source notes, and index.

Homeland Security: Protecting America's Targets

America is a target; the homeland is under threat. While Americans have been targets of terrorist attacks for quite some time, September 11, 2001, awoke the nation to the reality that we are vulnerable in our homes, our places of work and worship, and our means of public transportation. And yet, we must continue to function as best we can as the world's most vibrant economic and political community. The current threat environment requires greater engagement with the public, as the necessary eyes and ears of the nation's homeland security infrastructure. However, to be effective, the public must be equipped with the knowledge of where and why specific locations and activities may be a terrorist target, what is being done to protect those targets, and how they can help. This three-volume set answers that need. The chapters of each volume of Homeland Security revolve around a core of central questions. Are we safer today than we were pre-9/11? What steps have been taken in all these areas to protect ourselves? What are the threats we face, and what new threats have developed since 9/11? Are we staying one step ahead of those who wish to do us harm? In 2002, more than 400 million people, 122 million cars, 11 million trucks, 2.4 million freight cars, and 8 million containers entered the United States. Nearly 60,000 vessels entered the United States at its 301 ports of entry. Clearly the amount of activity this represents will require a long-term commitment to innovation, organizational learning, and public vigilance to complement an already overstretched network of government agencies and security professionals.

The Cinema of Me

The Self and Subjectivity in First Person Documentary

When a filmmaker makes a film with herself as a subject, she is already divided as both the subject matter of the film and the subject making the film. The two senses of the word are immediately in play – the matter and the maker—thus the two ways of being subjectified as both subject and object. Subjectivity finds its filmic expression, not surprisingly, in very personal ways, yet it is nonetheless shaped by and in relation to collective expressions of identity that can transform the cinema of 'me' into the cinema of 'we'. Leading scholars and practitioners of first-person film are brought together in this groundbreaking collection to consider the theoretical, ideological, and aesthetic challenges wrought by this form of filmmaking in its diverse cultural, geographical, and political contexts.

Geschichte der Menschen- und Bürgerrechte

Die Frage der Menschenrechte ist heute ein unverzichtbarer Bestandteil der internationalen und nationalen Politik. Deshalb ist es wichtig, ihre historische Dimension zu kennen.Erstmals im 17./18. Jahrhundert wurden in England und Nordamerika Burgerrechte formuliert; mit der Declaration des droits de lhomme et du citoyen 1789 begann die bis in die Gegenwart reichende Geschichte der Menschen- und Burgerrechte.Markante Einschnitte in der Entwicklung bildeten die europaischen Revolutionen von 1848 und 1918, die Charta der Vereinten Nationen von 1945 sowie die Allgemeine Erklarung der Menschenrechte von 1948. Unter Berufung auf eigene Traditionen wurden in der Folgezeit in Afrika und Asien sowie im politischen Islam autochthone Vorstellungen gegen das traditionelle, europaisch gepragte Konzept von Menschen- und Burgerrechten entwickelt.Im vorliegenden Buch wird die Geschichte der Menschen- und Burgerrechte - orientiert an den wichtigsten Texten und mit besonderer Berucksichtigung Deutschlands - nachgezeichnet.Ein Ausblick gilt den Menschenrechten am Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts.
