This is a pioneering work which explores the comparative dimensions of 'law of obscenity in USA, UK and India' and presents a detailed historical view of the law of obscenity in Ancient India, Greece and England. It analyses the role of the judiciary as an activist in this area and highlights the impact of American and British jurisprudence on the Indian scene through 'case-law-method'. The book further explores the devices aimed at suppressing the instinct of pandering to obscenity vis-a-vis the Indian and Western contemporary standards. It examines the existing loopholes in the legal framework of obscenity and suggests several correctives. This work, it is hoped, will prove highly useful not only to research scholars but to lawyers, judges and social reformers.
