THE INDIAN CONSTITUTION (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 174

The Oxford India Short Introductions are concise, stimulating, and accessible guides to different aspects of India. Combining authoritative analysis, new ideas, and diverse perspectives, they discuss subjects which are topical yet enduring, as also emerging areas of study and debate.

Giving identity to over a billion people, the Indian Constitution is one of the world’s great political texts. Drafted over six decades ago, its endurance and operation have fascinated and surprised many. In this short introduction, Madhav Khosla brings to light its many features, aspirations, and controversies. How does the Constitution separate power between different political actors? What form of citizenship does it embrace? And how can it change? In answering questions such as these, Khosla unravels the document’s remarkable and challenging journey, inviting readers to reflect upon the theory and practice of constitutionalism in the world’s largest democracy.

Madhav Khosla studied law at the National Law School of India University, Bangalore, and Yale University. He is currently a PhD candidate in political theory at Harvard University.

Reviews

‘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

Not for the layman

A refreshingly new book on the Indian Constitution, through the lens of case-law - in just over 160 pages. But as is claimed, the book is not totally jargon-free, and is definitely not recommended for the uninitiated. Though, a preliminary study or understanding of the constitution perhaps, shall suffice. Also, keep a bare act of the Constitution handy while reading this book. All in all, a good and sprinty read, but this definitely SHOULD NOT be the first book you read on the Indian Constitution. ( Perhaps one can start with Subhash Kashyap, or D.D. Basu- though the latter is quite exhaustive

book with new taste

There are plenty of books on the constitution of India but this book gives a new perspective about readings in constitution. The book is not any typical book but picks some parts of the constitution and elaborate it adequately.The book is divided in four chapters discussing the separation of powers and federalism in good length.Worth purchasing.

Good start but lost the track

Its a good book no doubt but it has lost track at various places....It has data but interesting facts such as the popular known irony of aya ram gaya ram in election cases is not there....Many more things are missing on this book....It feels like a edited version cut copy pasted from the Indian constitution. Nor is there any critical analysis...After reading the books such as the least dangerous bench and Constitutional interpretation on american constitution....I find this book a waste of time on Indian constitution for people who are above standard 12....as everything in this book is taught

Something apart from the usual rhetoric!!

Book is in the form of essay, with divided topics and perhaps most basic ones existing in the contemporary constitutional debates in India. Author is succinct, clear and cogent in writing. Requires basic understanding of the subject. Presents an academic view point.

A Fresh View of the Constitution !

This is a work unparalleled ....lucid and fresh. This strong but precise work would really change the way you perceive the constitution, but I would really recommend reading this - not as a first incursion into constitution but after having read a more basic and factual background of the constitution
