Description
The shock and trauma of the holocaust of World War II jolted the global statesmanship and the United Nations was born to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights ensuring dignity of man and peace and justice to nations, great and small. It is a subject of global interest magnetised, as it is, attracting intelligent study and refusing to be stale. Referring to the fact that contemporary history is enriched by human rights instruments and regional charters within the broad spectrum of the UN and its ancillary bodies, V. R. Krishna Iyer, a former Judge of the Supreme Court, in his Tagore Law Lectures delivered at the Calcutta University directs a sharp focus on India's human rights odyssey from a jurisprudential perspective and presents, with his erudition and scholarship, a learned discourse on the emergence, dimension and development of human rights and the realities confronting those rights, in a style vibrant and inimitable.
