SAGE Handbook of Human Rights

Alternative Titles
Handbook of human rights
Human rights
Description

The SAGE Handbook of Human Rights comprises a two volume set consisting of more than 50 original chapters that clarify and analyze human rights issues of both contemporary and future importance. The Handbook takes an inter-disciplinary approach, combining work in such traditional fields as law, political science and philosophy with such non-traditional subjects as climate change, demography, economics, geography, urban studies, mass communication, and business and marketing. In addition, as human rights has come to play a prominent role in popular culture, there is a section on human rights in art, film, music and literature. The first volume highlights this mainstreaming of human rights that has taken place, particularly over the course of the past two decades. Volume 2 goes into the international, regional and national mechanisms as well as the future directions of human rights issues and debates. Not only does the Handbook provide a state-of-the-art analysis of the discipline that addresses the history and development of human rights standards and its movements, mechanisms and institutions, but it seeks to go beyond this and produce a book that will help lead to prospective thinking. Edited by Anja Mihr & Mark Gibney.

Handbook of Lesbian and Gay Studies

Alternative Titles
Handbook of lesbian & gay studies
Lesbian and gay studies
Description

Lesbian and gay studies has produced a body of research and theorizing that is already too extensive and specialized to comprehensively present. In this volume, we aim to provide readers with an overview of the field. In each chapter, authors have made an effort to present a clear overview of the state of the research in a particular field, the key debates and positions, and to suggest future directions of possible research and theorizing. The volume is organized into four sections: History and Theory; Identity and Community; Institutions; and Politics. Topics include science and sexuality; generational issues in lesbian and gay lifescycles, the governance of sexualities, and the formation of the gay and lesbian movements. The result is an authoritative book that demarcates the field, stimulates critical discussion and provides lesbian and gay studies with an enriching focal reference point. Edited by Diane Richardson & Steven Seidman.

Politics, Social Activism, and Community Support: Selected Gay & Lesbian Periodicals and Newsletters

Alternative Titles
Gay and Lesbian Periodicals, Archives Unbound
Description

This collection of periodicals focuses on newsletters issued by gay and lesbian political and social activist organizations throughout the country and on periodicals devoted to gay and lesbian political and social activist agendas—the "public" face of gay and lesbian activism. In addition, this collection includes serial literature on its "private" face, exploring the challenges and complexities of building gay and lesbian communities inside and outside of a "straight" world, the need for psychological reinforcement through support groups in an effort to combat an often hostile environment, and the yearning for spiritual confirmation of one’s identity and life choices. Carefully selected for rarity from the thousands of titles in the GLBT Historical Society archives, the collection features more than 200 newsletter and periodical titles totaling nearly 8,000 issues. This product is strong in newsletters from organizations that began their work during the formative years of the gay and lesbian movement. Most of these organizations are now defunct and their newsletters are the only record of their history and contribution to the movement.
