The authors critically examined the provisions of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000 with the sole aim that a child is child and not a commodity. It is a person and is entitled to enjoy its rights unhindered. To make the book more impressive, the authors, besides commenting on the provisions, added a general commentary on the status of the child and a critical appreciation of the Act, 2000, pointing its strengths and lacunae. An effort is made to bring in maximum material, be it conventions or the rights of the child or the judicial pronouncements so that the book may prove to be a good guide for all concerned. State laws relating to Juvenile Justice are extensively compiled to make the book a one-stop referencer.
