    10 Judgements That Changed India, by Zia Mody, is a collection of ten critical judgements passed by the Supreme Court, which transformed democracy and redefined daily life for all Indians.

    Summary Of The Book

    The ten essays in 10 Judgements That Changed India, explores several themes such as environmental jurisprudence, reservations, and custodial deaths, within the Indian legal system. This book explains key legal concepts, provides a review of the judgements, and maps the impact of those judgements. It also provides a vital snapshot into India’s legal system and its foundations of democracy.

    This anthology of legal cases contains some of the most memorable court proceedings, which have had a direct impact on the Indian democracy. Some of the cases explored in this book are Union Carbide Corporation versus Union of India (1989), Maneka Gandhi versus Union of India (1978), Olga Tellis versus Bombay Municipal Corporation (1985), and Mohammed Ahmed Khan versus Shah Bano Begum (1985).

    The author’s purpose in writing such a book was threefold. First, her aim was to demolish the myth that the Indian judiciary system was weak, powerless, and purposeless. Second, through the selection and discussion of specific cases, the author attempts to demonstrate the resounding impact that the Supreme Court’s rulings had and continue to have on the Indian society. Lastly, through a detailed discussion of the court’s proceedings, Mody attempted to demonstrate the inner workings of the judicial process and the law, which is usually regarded as the domain of lawyers.

    After reading this book, readers will not only learn about some of the landmark decisions that have affected India, but also the social and cultural contexts in which they occurred.

    Good Book. Not Great Book.

    I bought this book to have a different perspective to modern history of India. So far the factual presentation of cases were concerned, what I did not enjoy or liked was her comments. This book is not an objective view of history. It has colour of her opinion.

    A good book for interested in law

    Very pricy... You can search all the cases on the internet and learned about them if you have an interest in law besides that book contain several references like half of the page contain reference to some link over internet. Writing is not so good. I bought this book for Rs. 269. Anything above 200 is very pricy in my opinion for this book. Writer is the daughter of Ex-solicitor general.

    Review of books

    When a Zia Mody writes something connected to her profession and her iconic dad Mr Soli Sorabji writes the preface, it does not need comments from lesser mortals. It has to be a good book.

    A Good Read

    The book is an amazing read for people from all walks of life. It is lucid, plain and informative. It spells out what goes behind the scenes and the aftermath of a judicial ruling. I would suggest every person should read this to be aware of the leaps we have made in a healthy life. The book criticises but does not go overboard with that and recognises the practical concerns to be dealt with.
