The book is divided into three chapters. The first chapter is a bird's eye view with ten small sub chapters containing short pieces giving a brief perspective of the issue and different dimensions of the problem. The remaining two chapters contain detailed descriptions with case law cited. Various issues relating to implementation of foreign court judgments and possible safeguards to ensure return of children to their foreign homes are eloquently highlighted in these detailed chapters. The book has 16 appendices, including relevant Indian statutes, the Hague Convention, extradition treaty between India and UK and important judgments, which are important reference documents relating to the issue of international parental child abduction. The book also includes 16 Supreme Court of India judgments which are the relevant case law on the subject. Four judgments laying down essential principles governing the principle of the welfare of the child being the paramount consideration are also part of this sterling work. The book is a first of its kind analytical compilation on the subject. It is a handy ready reckoner, which puts together all the material on the subject without any further reference to other sources, for all stakeholders both in India and abroad. Recent decisions of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India on the subject, literally serve the role of a lighthouse in the absence of prolonged legislative intervention.
