The book addresses the case of child labour by moving beyond the usual concern that regards the phenomenal essentially as an 'evil', harmful and corrupt, and instead attempts to assess children’s work in the relevant socio-economic and cultural context. It examines the specification of girl child labour in the garment industry and underlines how tradition , culture, religion, and sexual division of labour determine the parameters within which they live, work and resist patriarchal control and differential treatment at home and in the workplace.

This book is an attempt to bring the complexities and multiplicities of violence inflicted against women and the different dimensions of militarisation. Several issues however inform and shape the South Asian complexities with respect to women and militancy, and the book attempts to address them both theoretically and empirically. Firstly, the book looks at the challenges and contradiction. South Asia has outstanding women leaders at the state level, but violence against women and that too of varied nature is on the rise.

In positivist social sciences measurement is an important exercise in determining casual and correlational relationship. Efforts at constructing Human Security Index (HIS) picked up momentum following the introduction of Human Development Index (HDI) by the end in 1993. He provides the site for measuring the interface between the downsides of development and various levels and sources of insecurities. The traditional debate between ‘freedom from want’ and ‘freedom from fear’ is also reflected here.
