Challenging The Rules(s) of Law: Colonialism, Criminology and Human Rights in India
Kalpana Kannabiran, Ranbir Singh
SAGE Publications, Nov 11, 2008 - Social Science - 495 pages
This collection of essays re-examines the field of criminology through an interdisciplinary lens, challenging in the process unproblematic assumptions of the rule of law and opening out avenues for a renewed and radical restatement of the contexts of criminal law in India. This collection is a significant step towards mapping the ways in which interdisciplinary research and human rights activism might inform legal praxis more effectively and holistically. The contributors are a diverse group widely respected activists, bureaucrats, scholars, and professionals who share concerns on criminal justice systems and the need to entrench human rights in the Indian polity.
