9780198704898: The Oxford Handbook of the Indian Constitution (Oxford Handbooks)

The Indian Constitution is one of the world's longest and most important political texts. Its birth, over six decades ago, signalled the arrival of the first major post-colonial constitution and the world's largest and arguably most daring democratic experiment. Apart from greater domestic focus on the Constitution and the institutional role of the Supreme Court within India's democratic framework, recent years have also witnessed enormous comparative interest in India's constitutional experiment.

The Oxford Handbook of the Indian Constitution is a wide-ranging, analytical reflection on the major themes and debates that surround India's Constitution. The Handbook provides a comprehensive account of the developments and doctrinal features of India's Constitution, as well as articulating frameworks and methodological approaches through which studies of Indian constitutionalism, and constitutionalism more generally, might proceed. Its contributions range from rigorous, legal studies of provisions within the text to reflections upon historical trends and social practices. As such the Handbook is an essential reference point not merely for Indian and comparative constitutional scholars, but for students of Indian democracy more generally.

Review:

The Oxford Handbook of the Indian Constitution contains fifty-six scintillating essays on how India's Constitution has (and has not) worked these past sixty-five years. These essays eloquently capture the tension that exists between traditional legal approaches to a written constitution and the contrary expectations of the people for whose benefit it was framed. Fali S. Nariman, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of India Indian constitutionalism is one of humanity's great jurisprudential achievements. It is a boisterous and contentious enterprise that strives to endow the planet's largest, most diverse, and most complex democracy with legal form. The Oxford Handbook of the Indian Constitution is a comprehensive guide to this great adventure. It provides an essential introduction to the multiple and intricate dimensions of this aspiration to legal structure. Robert Post, Dean and Sol & Lillian Goldman Professor of Law, Yale Law School The Oxford Handbook of the Indian Constitution is a massive undertaking-not only in the many facets of the Indian Constitution that it explores, but in the detailed and illuminating ways in which it relates the constitutional politics of India to constitutionalism generally in the world. The result is that constitutional scholars everywhere will benefit from reading these fifty-six rich and insightful chapters. I can't imagine a better or more thoughtful guide to the principles, procedures, and problems of the world's largest democracy. Jeremy Waldron, University Professor and Professor of Law, New York University School of Law --Various
