    The readings by prominent literary authors and journalists chosen for the anthology Global Rights and Perceptions: Call to Awareness and Action highlight the many ways in which human rights are being violated through practices such as human trafficking, intellectual piracy, organ trade, and female feticide.

    In Global Rights and Perceptions: Call to Awareness and Action students read from a wide variety of original sources — foreign policy journals, non-fiction books, medical journals, and current affairs magazines, including the New Statesman, the Journal of Medical Ethics, Foreign Policy, and the Journal of American and Comparative Culture. The textbook also includes representative student papers on global issues to stimulate students’ imaginations and exemplify compelling writing strategies. This varied exposure gives students several gateways through which to approach complex social issues and raises awareness about how widespread these issues are and how seriously they are being considered by academic, journalistic, literary, and social entities.
    The Third Edition will be published Spring 2019. ISBN: 978-1-5165-4549-0
