Between the 1960s and the 1980s, the human rights movement achieved unprecedented global prominence. Amnesty International attained striking visibility with its Campaign Against Torture; Soviet dissidents attracted a worldwide audience for their heroism in facing down a totalitarian state; the Helsinki Accords were signed, incorporating a "third basket" of human rights principles; and the Carter administration formally gave the United States a human rights policy. The Breakthrough is the first collection to examine this decisive era as a whole, tracing key developments in both Western and non-Western engagement with human rights and placing new emphasis on the role of human rights in the international history of the past century. Bringing together original essays from some of the field's leading scholars, this volume not only explores the transnational histories of international and nongovernmental human rights organizations but also analyzes the complex interplay between gender, sociology, and ideology in the making of human rights politics at the local level. Detailed case studies illuminate how a number of local movements—from the 1975 World Congress of Women in East Berlin, to antiapartheid activism in Britain, to protests in Latin America—affected international human rights discourse in the era as well as the ways these moments continue to influence current understanding of human rights history and advocacy. The global south—an area not usually treated as a scene of human rights politics—is also spotlighted in groundbreaking chapters on Biafran, South American, and Indonesian developments. In recovering the remarkable presence of global human rights talk and practice in the 1970s, The Breakthrough brings this pivotal decade to the forefront of contemporary scholarly debate.

As an eleven-year-old girl living in Iran, Zahra's live was forever changed after her father was killed instantly in a car accident. In this firsthand account, Zahra recounts her journey of personal growth and intimate relationship with God that ultimately gave her the strength to end her abusive twenty-two-year marriage. In this tale of self-growth, Zahra describes her daily struggles as a mother and a wife, and the spiritual transformation that led her to independence. From dealing with her father's tragic death to her rushed marriage to a man she hardly knew, Zahra shares her intimate conversations with God and how he has been there every step of the way, to help guide her through the pain, tears, dark days, and ultimately to the joy she has found today. Her faith in God allowed her to find the courage to seek justice when she thought no one was out there and enabled her to end her destructive cycle of marriage. It inspired her to follow her dreams and led her to find her passion in life. The Breakthrough demonstrates the power of God and the inspiration that can be found among those who believe in him.

T his is a story about time, and the time travel that goes on inside our minds. It's the story about the way our consciousness lives its life, the way it falls through the time inside our minds back into the past, helplessly, and sometimes dangerously. And it's about the way it undertakes the heroic journey back again into this present moment, where it does its greatest work and experiences its most profound wisdom and peace. I've dreamed of creating a kind of experience which might help bring a reader, an audience, to see what's at the flash point of a major personal transformation. I don't mean just a feeling of hope or inspiration. I want for people to see--to really see--what I believe the mind looks like inside: what astounding things it's made of, how the past lives right there inside it, and how to decipher and break that spell we call emotional pain, which comes from that past. And I also want to convey some things I've learned about the nature of this present moment we're in, and how to mobilize new strength in order to feel steady, serene, resilient, and newly alive to it. And by doing this, I wanted to create something that might shorten how long it would take to reach a lasting breakthrough. --From the Introduction "Fredric Hartman's psychotherapy guide is, quite literally, a life-changer...you'll probably become as mesmerized by the power and the light that shines through this book as I was.

I was profoundly impacted by what I read...This is a special book..." --READERS' FAVORITE In The Breakthrough, Dr. Fredric C. Hartman paints a compelling picture of emotional pain and its context within the human mind. Set in the dramatic backdrop of a therapy session as a stage play, featuring Dr. Hartman as the psychologist and Human Consciousness itself as "the patient," this is a practical guide for anyone locked within the grip of troubling memories and pain. In his play, Dr. Hartman tells the story about our vulnerability to painful emotions, which flare up from the depths of our minds, casting spells over us. As the play unfolds, he develops two powerful ways to strengthen our consciousness enough to break these spells: one, by recognizing and grappling with the two surprisingly simple thoughts that lie at the heart--and generate the pain--in each of our negative emotions, and two, by learning to stay focused on the present moment--the single moment we spend our entire lives in--whose mysterious, unexpected nature he describes in vivid detail. The Breakthrough is a complete, entertaining, practical plan for how to overcome emotional distress and embrace a calmer and more fulfilling way to experience life.
