This book is the result of a life-time of study and practical experience of the working of our Constitution. It analyses the Constitution as it has grown and worked, and the constitutional law as it has developed through judicial interpretations. At once comprehensive and concise, it fulfils a long-felt need for a handy but authoritative study of our Constitution. Every part, chapter and article of the Constitution has been covered by the commentary. The concluding chapter suggests the need for a review of the working of the Constitution and an evaluation of the National Commission Report on the subject. Faculty, objective and analytical, this thoroughly revised edition is highly readable. It should prove useful not only to students and scholars of political science and constitutional law but also to lawyers, teachers and others keen to understand the Constitution and the political system under which we live.
