Human rights have been violated since time immemorial. Women have been consistently subjugated and repressed as the 'weaker' sex. Children have been exploited and abused systematically by family as well as strangers. In India the record of both these areas is quite dismal. Statutory bodies such as the National Human Right Commission and their state counterparts have been doing a thankless job and have little resources or teeth. It is time to take stock of the entire subject of human right as understood in the context of the modern world. It is in this direction that the present publication takes a significant step. It bring to the reader, the research student, the lawyer and the social scientist a comprehensive overview of the subject. The aspects included are: Concept and perception; Evolution and development; Dimensions: Women, Children, Prisoners detainees, Mentally Deranged, Physically challenged, etc; Global perspective including international human Rights organisations. These four comprehensive volumes will prove to be an invaluable source of referencing as well as study material.
