What are the origins of human rights? This question, rarely asked before the end of the Cold War, has in recent years become a major focus of historical and ideological strife. In this sequence of reflective and critical studies, Samuel Moyn engages with some of the leading interpreters of human rights, thinkers who have been creating a field from scratch without due reflection on the local and temporal contexts of the stories they are telling. Having staked out his owns claims about the postwar origins of human rights discourse in his acclaimed "Last Utopia, " Moyn, in this volume, takes issue with rival conceptions including, especially, those that underlie justifications of humanitarian intervention "From the Hardcover edition.".

Archaeology for whom? The dozen well-known contributors to this innovative volume suggest nothing less than a transformation of the discipline into a service-oriented, community-based endeavor. They wish to replace the primacy of meeting academic demands with meeting the needs and values of those outside the field who may benefit most from our work. They insist that we employ both rigorous scientific methods and an equally rigorous critique of those practises to ensure that our work addresses real-world social, environmental and political problems. A transformed archaeology requires both personal engagement and a new toolkit. Thus, in addition to the theoretical grounding and case materials from around the world, each contributor offers a personal statement of their goals and an outline of collaborative methods that can be adopted by other archaeologists.

In the foreword, Dr. Robert Burkard states, "If you are looking for a clinical cookbook on how to diagnose and treat those with (central) auditory processing disorders (CAPD), you should not read this book. This book is much less than a clinical cookbook, and much, much more." Featuring contributions from a stellar team of expert contributors in the areas of audiology, psychology, anatomy, neuroscience, imaging science, and epidemiology, this new book addresses major controversies in the field of auditory processing and its disorders. The contributors consider a range of topics including the history of the field, contemporary anatomical models, auditory processing streams, neuroplasticity, professional models, modality specificity, music perception and its disorders, speech recognition, aging, educational outcomes, tinnitus, and auditory neuropathy.

  • A note on the Eigenvalue problems in crystal statistics-- the use of the proper time in quantum electrodynamics-- possible existence of a heavy neutral meson-- parametric representation of General Green's functions-- dispersion relations for form factors-- axial vector currents conservation in weak interactions-- a "superconductor" model for elementary particles and its consequences-- a dynamical model of elementary particles based on analogy with superconductivity I (with G. Jona-Lasino)-- chirality conservation with soft pion production (with D. Lurie)-- infinite multiplets-- s-matrix in semiclassical approximation-- quark model and the factorization of Veneziano amplitude-- duality and hadrodynamics-- generalized Hamiltonian dynamics-- strings, vortices and gauge fields-- the BCS mechanisms, quasi-supersymmetry and the Fermion mass matrix.

This text contains selected papers of the particle theorist, Professor Nambu. It comprises about 40 papers which made fundamental contributions to our understanding of particle physics during the last few decades. The unpublished lecture note on string theory (1969) and the first paper on spontaneous symmetry breaking (1961) are retyped and included. The book also contains a memoir of Professor Nambu on his research career.
