It is important that we recognize the Indian Constitution not only as a legal or moral entity but also as a living organism, sustaining and consolidating our constitutional democracy. Indian Constitution: Text, Context and Interpretation presents an understanding of the Constitution in the context of the rapid changes arising out of indigenous and exogenous influences. It traces the evolution of the constitutional provisions, their core nature and manifestation with reference to the situational socio-economic circumstances in a globalizing world. This book stands apart from the other existing titles on the subject as it goes beyond the conventional mode of understanding the Constitution. It is both informative and intriguing as it deals with the actual constitutional provisions, and critically analyses the foundational values on which they rest. Key Features * An analytical account of the processes leading to the making of the Constitution * A thorough discussion of the core constitutional provisions * Reinterpretation of the constitutional provisions in the light of multiple judicial pronouncements.
