Product description


Written in clear, jargon-free prose, this critical study will be a marvellous resource for lawyers and non-lawyers alike. (Justice Ruma Pal, Former Judge, Supreme Court of India)

A wonderful introduction to an exciting subject. Khosla presents an analytical and deeply insightful account of one of the landmark constitutions of our time. (Justice Aharon Barak, Former Chief Justice of Israel)

The Indian Constitution anchors India's political identity and has shaped the country's destiny-though not always in ways the founders anticipated. Yet, for all its formal centrality and its easy invocation by disparate political projects, the ambiguities of its commitments and the vicissitudes of its history remain little understood. In this remarkable book ... Madhav Khosla compels us to think seriously both about the fitful evolution of constitutional interpretation and about the place acquired by the Constitution in our democratic life. Khosla's outstanding book is far and away the most stimulating introduction to the life of our Constitution: and it signals the arrival of an important new voice in our intellectual life. (Sunil Khilnani, author of The Idea of India)
