    Summary Of The Book

    Our Constitution: An Introduction To India’s Constitution And Constitutional Law is a nearly exhaustive manual which provides an introduction to the Indian Constitution in a style that is very readable and easy to understand. The book aims to break down all the constitutional terms for laymen and educating the reader to help him understand what his entitlements are according to the constitution and what his fundamental rights mean to him.

    The Legislature, The Judiciary and The Executive branches, all come under the umbrella of The Constitution of India, a complex blueprint which has laid down the legal framework to be followed by each body of the government. Our Constitution: An Introduction To India’s Constitution And Constitutional Law details every aspect of governance and specifies the fundamental rights and duties of every citizen of India.

    The legal document lays down the structure of each of the various government institutions and procedures to be followed in every matter of the law. Our Constitution: An Introduction To India’s Constitution And Constitutional Law introduces the complex mechanics of this framework to the reader in a manner that is comprehensive. The book also includes a review section, thoughtfully organized by the author, that aims to gather ideas and suggestions from the reader about the Constitution. The book ends with the Table of Constitutional Amendments from 1950 to 2009.

    Quick understanding of constitutional law. Buy it.

    This is a perfect book for somebody who wish to understand the constitutional provisions simply. It does not contain unnecessary commentary and list of unending cases. It deals with each topic very precisely without missing out on anything. One can read it along with DD basu if she or he wants to make a detailed study but on the other hand also wants to understand the provisions quickly. I was a little apprehensive before buying it, but it turned out to be a smart choice. Highly recommended.

    Best starter for Indian Constitution!

    The name of the author itself gives credibility to the book. Wonderful synopsis, clear views and real examples whereever required!

    A lot of myths have been broken and and doubts have been cleared. One example: The parliament has no power to impeach a judge of high-court/supreme-court. It can only recommend for the impeachment of a judge to the President.

    Good read for a serious reader and a must for anyone preparing for UPSC CSAT. Would be a good read even for those with no knowledge for Co...

    Its not the best but its interesting if seriously into the politics

    This is ofcourse a very good book but the layout of the matter inside is a not as interesting and make dull and boring to read. But if ignored that and start getting deeper into the story, there are things and facts that is to be found in no other book.

    I'm saying this because am kinda politics freak and i've read of books on constitution and polity of India. But what i found in this book was nascent to me in some of the context.

    A definite buy but for those only who seriously likes politi...
