The present book The Human Rights is an indepth-systematized study of recent developments, particularly since 1970s, in the international concern for promotion and protection of basic human rights within and beyond national boundaries. This has been necessitated by tremendous growth and taking place of a good number of international treaties, conventions, declarations and practices which are not noticed in books though these are actually followed by the States, and to varying extent these are enforced by the concerned international, regional or national authorities. In many cases, these developments in favour of human rights for people are now integral part of international law and form part of international diplomacy, international relations or international politics. Respect for human rights is now regarded as good or ideal national politics world over: It is also part of active diplomacy.
