M P Jain Indian Constitutional Law is an authoritative and comprehensive study on the Constitution of India. The book critically examines the salient features of this most unique of Constitutions. The present work follows a similar format, organization and methodology of treatment of the subject matter as did the various earlier editions. Relevant facts of important cases and a summary of the law laid down in them, have been given in the body of the text so as to enable the readers to better understand the subject. The book provides the complete text of crucial documents on the historical development of the Indian
Constitution, including British constitutional documents starting from the Government of India Act, 1800. The book also discusses provisions of foreign constitutions, in particular those of the UK, USA, Canada and Australia and gives an illuminating comparative perspective on the Indian Constitution. The period since the last edition of this book has seen many significant developments in the interpretation of several constitutional provisions, which are examined in this edition. The dynamic judicial approach of these years has given a new dimension to the concept and scope of fundamental rights. The introduction of Article 21-A, making education a fundamental right, has inspired the revising authors to add a new chapter to the book.
