Description - People's Rights by Manoranjan Mohanty

The contributors examine case studies from Asia and Africa of successful and unsuccessful social movements which illustrate the nature of the deilemmas in the developing world. Rather than locating rights in the individualist tradition of Western liberalism, they are viewed as an affirmation of the political conditions of human existence, involving a struggle against class exploitation and social oppression. Challenging Western notions of human rights, nationhood, civil society and citizenship, the articles contain fresh insights for reconceptualising democratic rights. These original formulations on the relationship between the state and civil society, social transformation and the multidimensional nature of freedom open up new Vistas for theoretical exploration.
