Freedom's Battle: The Origins of Humanitarian Intervention

(Heftet)
Beskrivelse:

This gripping and important book brings alive over two hundred years of humanitarian interventions. "Freedom's Battle "illuminates the passionate debates between conscience and imperialism ignited by the first human rights activists in the 19th century, and shows how a newly emergent free press galvanized British, American, and French citizens to action by exposing them to distant atrocities. Wildly romantic and full of bizarre enthusiasms, these activists were pioneers of a new political consciousness. And their legacy has much to teach us about today's human rights crises.
