B R Ambedkar: The Quest for Justice is a five-volume set of papers exploring the major themes of research surrounding the capacious oeuvre of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, primarily in terms of political, social, legal, economic, gender, racial, religious, and cultural justice. Volume 1 focuses specifically on the theme of political justice. With contributions from foremost political theorists, the volume begins with a piece on the intellectual and political legacy of Ambedkar by Bhikhu Parekh. Several chapters then focus on the centrality of democracy and of equality to Ambedkar''s political philosophy as a whole (Anand Teltumbde and Pradeep Gokhale), and juxtapose Ambedkar''s political thought to other important thinkers of his preceding or succeeding generations, including Antonio Gramsci (Cosimo Zene), John Dewey (Scott Stroud and J. Daniel Elam), M.K. Gandhi (Pushparaj Deshpande), and John Rawls (Shaunna Rodrigues). The volume also boasts of rich disciplinary interventions within political theory as such (Neera Chandhoke and Vidhu Verma). With a Foreword by Shashi Tharoor and an Introduction by the Editor (Aakash Singh Rathore), this collection on political justice is an essential contribution to the emerging international, multi-disciplinary field of Ambedkar Studies by many of its most distinguished representative scholars, policy makers, and activists alike.
