It is not very common to find a scholar who combines the skills of a historian and the craft of a lawyer. The book is an example of this combination, making for a fascinating read on the evolution of the Indian Constitution…We owe it to Ananth for bringing together juridical science and history, as it ought to be.
[This book] provides a valuable understanding of the development of the right to property and will be of relevance to historians, lawyers and others interested in the intersection of this right with constitutional guarantees.(The Hindu, 21 February 2016)
This book is a timely work recording the evolution of the right to property since India gained her Independence.(LiveMint, 12 March 2015)
[The Book] is a fine product of thorough research done by the author. It is highly informative and greatly insightful, it not only helps the readers to understand the relationship between right to property and the socialist agenda of the Indian Constitution but also examines the changing pattern of relationships between the political establishment and the judiciary in India.(Social Change, Vol 46 (Issue 3), September 2016)
