            'A must-read. Acemoglu and Robinson are intellectual heavyweights of the first rank . . . erudite and fascinating' Paul Collier, Guardian, on Why Nations Fail In this profoundly important follow up to their global bestseller, Acemoglu and Robinson provide a powerful new framework... for looking at countries' development through the way that the state interacts with society. This conceptualisation - in which any country can be located on a simple diagram and its future predicted - is new and based on decades of their research. The power distribution between state and society affects how peaceful societies are, what types of institutions develop, how much oppression and fear people suffer, how their economies are organized, and how rich they are. Full of entertaining stories from the past (it starts with the wife of a Nigerian ruler fleeing Abuja with 38 suitcases of cash), Balance of Power sheds light on issues from the present and has practical political ideas for the future. 'An intellectually rich book that develops an important thesis with verve' Martin Wolf, Financial Times, on Why Nations Fail

            Human Rights and Civil Liberties (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            Protecting and promoting human rights, including civil liberties, is about making sure that basic safeguards for equality and fairness are in place so that we can prevent the violation of rights, and provide remedies when a violation does occur. Following a recent national consul...tation over a charter or bill of rights aimed at dealing with some controversial issues and emerging human rights principles, the Federal Government has decided it will not be introducing a Human Rights Act in Australia, but rather a new human rights framework. Protecting and promoting human rights requires balancing the interests of individuals and groups with the interests of society including security, public health and public order. This book examines Australia's human rights record and a range of opinions in the debate over adequate and appropriate human rights protection. Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.
