Punch Carrie Foster was still young when she started breaking the law. And she was good at it. Gordon Matthews had transgressed only once, but the crime was far more serious.

"In this powerful, timely study Ronald Niezen examines the processes by which cultural concepts are conceived and collective rights are defended in international law. Niezen argues that cultivating support on behalf of those experiencing human rights violations often calls for strategic representations of injustice and suffering to distant audiences. The positive impulse behind public responses to political abuse can be found in the satisfaction of justice done. But the fact that oppressed peoples and their supporters from around the world are competing for public attention is actually a profound source of global difference, stemming from differential capacities to appeal to a remote, unknown public. Niezen's discussion of the impact of public opinion on law provides fresh insights into the importance of legally-constructed identity and the changing pathways through which it is being shaped - crucial issues for all those with an interest in anthropology, politics and human rights law"--Provided by publisher

The hand of death by Margaret Yorke( Book )

30 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Finalist for the National Book Award in Poetry. Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Poetry. Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in Criticism. Winner of the NAACP Image Award. Winner of the L.A. Times Book Prize. Winner of the PEN Open Book Award. Claudia Rankine's bold new book recounts mounting racial aggressions in ongoing encounters in twenty-first-century daily life and in the media. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams and the soccer field with Zinedine Zidane, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. The accumulative stresses come to bear on a person's ability to speak, perform, and stay alive. Our addressability is tied to the state of our belonging, Rankine argues, as are our assumptions and expectations of citizenship. In essay, image, and poetry, Citizen is a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in our contemporary, often named "post-race" society
