The introduction explains the theme of the book, which is about the human rights implications of corruption in India. It argues that corruption in India is not merely a law enforcement issue where the existing laws of the state are violated and which can be remedied merely by more stringent law enforcement. It suggests that the existing anti-corruption framework in India places far too much emphasis on the criminal justice system for dealing with corruption, a system that is itself facing a crisis due to corruption and other problems. It also discusses the focus and principles of the so-called rights-based approach to fighting corruption.
