Until the end of 2017, de Gruyter is offering free access to its Rights, Action, and Social Responsibility ebook Collection for "all students and faculty". You do have to register, and it appears that when I did so, I did so for my entire University! I had expected an email with a username and login, but got a notice several days later (as did at least one other colleague) that "Your institution now has online access to all the titles in our Rights, Action, and Social Responsibility collection until December 31, 2017." It appears to be IP-based, but I didn't give them any info other than my institution name, so YMMV. Content is available only chapter-by-chapter as PDF documents.
Public debates surrounding immigration policy, climate change, international relations, and constitutional and human rights are currently at the forefront of our national discourse. Critical reasoning, supported through academic research, is needed.
As a result, De Gruyter, along with our partner presses, is making freely available books and journal articles across nine topical areas for all students and faculty. Broadening access to this scholarship enables more people to address these issues in an informed manner: it helps us combat false news sources, to consider the nature of truth and ethics, and to understand the struggles of all members of society.
We can engage in these important debates intelligently and confidently using credible sources. To provide free access for your library please register here.
