by Torunn Wimpelmann

Since the 2001 overthrow of the Taliban government in Afghanistan, violence against women has emerged as the single most important issue for Afghan gender politics.

The People's Victory: Stories from the Front Lines in the Fight for Marriage Equality

by Marriage Equality USA

In 1996 a small group of everyday Americans, fed up with being told by allies that marriage equality was the "wrong" issue, and under attack by opponents who said their love and families were "not worthy" of the same institution, launched what would become the nation's oldest and largest grassroots organization for equal marriage rights. The People's Victory is a collection of their stories of how through education and advocacy, success and set back, everyday individuals across the country found their voice to resist, fight, and eventually bring equal marriage rights to an entire nation. The People's Victory shares deeply moving personal testimonies of men and women who lost their spouses to death, only to lose everything they've built for decades; parents who became activists to save th...

Surveillance, Privacy and Security: Citizens’ Perspectives (PRIO New Security Studies)

by Michael Friedewald

This volume examines the relationship between privacy, surveillance and security, and the alleged privacy–security trade-off, focusing on the citizen’s perspective.Recent revelations of mass surveillance programmes clearly demonstrate the ever-increasing capabilities of surveillance technologies. The lack of serious reactions to these activities shows that the political will to implement them appears to be an unbroken trend. The resulting move into a surveillance society is, however, contested for many reasons. Are the resulting infringements of privacy and other human rights compatible with democratic societies? Is security necessarily depending on surveillance? Are there alternative ways to frame security? Is it possible to gain in security by giving up civil liberties, or is it even...

On Liberty (Wisehouse Classics - The Authoritative Harvard Edition 1909)

by John Stuart Mill

ON LIBERTY is a philosophical work by English philosopher John Stuart Mill, originally intended as a short essay. The work, published in 1859, applies Mill's ethical system of utilitarianism to society and the state. Mill attempts to establish standards for the relationship between authority and liberty. He emphasizes the importance of individuality which he conceived as a prerequisite to the higher pleasures-the summum bonum of Utilitarianism. Furthermore, Mill criticised the errors of past attempts to defend individuality where, for example, democratic ideals resulted in the "tyranny of the majority". Among the standards established in this work are Mill's three basic liberties of individuals, his three legitimate objections to government intervention, and his two maxims regarding the re...
