About the Book
This is a unique and important book…
One learns invaluable lessons from this insightful book and, for that, one is grateful to the author for contributing to our understanding of what it means to be working for the promotion and protection of human rights on the ground and how this task can be taken forward in the future, especially in developing countries.

I have tried to draw from experiences of the descent into barbaric forms of violence in Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Nepal and several other countries in Asia in order develop new insights into some profound changes taking place in the world today. The body, mind, soul and society are enveloped in a tragic situation unprecedented in human history. More sophisticated means than Gas Chambers are now used to cause break down of human spirit.
A Readers Comment
The first thing that I thought of while reading the new book is the phrase sung by Amos in the Old Testament.
“I hate, I despise your religious feasts; I cannot stand your assemblies. Even though you bring me burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Though you bring choice fellowship offerings, I will have no regard for them. Away with the noise of your songs! I will not listen to the music of your harps. But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!”
The dream where justice rolling on like a river and righteousness like a never-failing stream might be something that we, humans, cannot even dare to dream in this world. Yet, I believe we live in this world as humans, thanks to those people who dream the unbreakable when others don’t.
