The Commentary was first published within nine months of the commencement of the Constitution in 1950, it is the pioneering work on the Indian Constitution. It is not merely a digest of cases, but rather a treatise on comparative constitutional jurisprudence. The first authoritative work on the Constitution of India that adopted an interdisciplinary approach. It threw light on this great document from different angles and examined it from the philosophical, sociological, political as well as legal perpectives. It was the first Indian work on Constitutional Law to be studied from one end of the world to the other, including countries, that do not belong to the Anglo-American jurisprudential tradition. These two volumes in discussion cover one of the most fascinating topics in the Constitution: the powers of the country’s High Courts in relation to the enforcement of fundamental and other legal rights.
