Quick Overview

Eastern Basic Structure Constitutionalism- Revisiting Kesavananda Bharati

"...an intellectually stimulating volume in honour of Mr H.M. Seervai and
Mr N.A. Palkhivala. This volume is indeed worth reading..."

Hon'ble Mr. Justice K. G. Balakrishnan
Chairperson, National Human Rights Commission
(Former Chief Justice of India)

This immensely ambitious work extensively examines the judgments delivered in the landmark Kesavananda Bharati case - an extremely significant case in the constitutional history of India that led to the laying down of "basic structure" doctrine which limits the amending power of parliament.

The book undertakes para by para analysis of each opinion in Kesavananda Bharati's case. All the philosophical as well as realistic questions that have arisen in relation to the "basic structure" doctrine have been discussed. Views of the judges in the case have been compared and contrasted and interesting and paradoxical conclusion drawn in their reasoning. The change of positions of the judges in the subsequent decisions has also been highlighted.

The book also contains thought provoking papers by invited lawyers, jurists and academicians covering range of issues touching “basic structure” doctrine. Articles devoted to the legacy of Mr Seervai and Mr Palkhivala have also been included.

This legal classic will certainly be one of the most prized collections for any library.
