Human Rights and Peace, fourth in the South Asian Peace Studies series, is a useful contribution to the expanding body of literature on the subject...This volume is a timely contribution, both to the theoretical literature on peace studies, and to empirical practices of civil liberties and human rights movements. It also has the potential to inform policy on the design and working of state institutions promoting rights and deepening democracy...This volume both catalogues and describes those multiple struggles, and locates them in the context of established concepts of human rights and peace.-- Pacific Affairs
The book contains powerful accounts of the human rights challenges in the South Asian region; wars and conflicts, inter-ethnic disputes, the plight of displaced persons and the terror of extra-judicial killings and apparently state-sponsored violence.-- Peace and Conflict Studies: Journal of Peace Psychology
This is a timely volume of essays, significant in the context of the present times of unprecedented turmoil and a stealthy erosion of the rights and liberties of an ever-increasing majority, who as the editor rightly points out, continue to be rendered ` rightless', even amidst an ever-expanding range of human rights instruments and laws. This collection of essays paints a broad canvas of the multifaceted interplay of rights and peace and underscores the inextricable link between the two.-- The Book Review
