Offences Against Women: Socio-legal Perspectives

K. Kumar (Author) Punam Rani (Author)
Synopsis Offences against women are multi-dimensional, and scholars have looked at them in their various perspectives. Learned authors of this book have focussed their attention on the socio-legal perspective, which is probably the most important and most relevant. Most of the offences are due to social conditions and law has to take care of them. Though women make almost half the society, they are still the worst victims of social injustice and degrading criminal assaults. The authors of this book have made efforts to make a searching look at the various aspects which give rise to offences against women. They have tried to analyse the causes of crime and have made valuable suggestions for their reduction, and total elimination. The book sings the ode to women's woes in all possible tunes to bring home the message of their sufferings and makes wide-ranging plea for their liberation from socio-legal bondages. It is not merely informative but also critical of existing law and social conditions and suggestive of changes needed to make law more effective. It highlights the relationship between law and social norms and the interdependence of one on the other.
