In this classic work, based on original sources, one of the world's leading experts on Indian constitution law examines the ideals, motivations, and vision of the founders of the Indian Constitution. He analyses the extent to which they were successful in articulating India's goals and in designing be necessary governing structures. The book shows how the constitution has been a socially revolutionary and modernizing force. The author contends that the seeds of solutions to existing and future problems can be found within the document's principles and that it is misguided to say that the constitution has not 'worked'. This volume is essential reading for scholars and students of law and political science,as well as all those interested in the making of contemporary India.
