Human Rights

India and the West

Edited by Ashwini Peetush
Jay Drydyk

  • A book first of its kind, it provides an intercultural understanding of human rights drawing on vast Indian traditions, engaging theoretical discussions as well as analysing the contexts for their application
  • The work is highly interdisciplinary in nature-relevant for several subjects and disciplines such as political science, sociology, law, history, philosophy, anthropology, religion studies, development studies, and South Asian studies.
  • The essays do not simply ask how to articulate and support Western understandings of human rights from Indian sources (much of the past literature on non-Western understanding of human rights does this); rather, they also ask what the West can learn from Indian understandings of human rights.
  • The contributors bring in different critical perspectives from the different disciplines they come from
