About The Book Human Rights Covenants And Indian Law
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was a sincere effort by the U.N.O. to underscore the acceptance by civilized nations that all human beings are endowed with certain inalienable rights which deserve respect by all nations of the world. But this declaration was not a binding treaty. The world body evolved a consensus to divide the human rights into two classes. The rights against the State were collected in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the positive rights in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
This book gives parallel provisions contained in the Constitution and various Acts in force in India. It also refers to decisions of the Supreme Court.
There is no other book which gives Indian Law along with each article of these two covenants.
Author's Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Indian Law together with this book gives a complete view of Human Rights and Indian Law. They form a duo, a set of two.
