about

First book to explore the relationship between constitutionalism and popular sovereignty in the Indian context. It argues that the identity of the Indian constitution was shaped by a period of prolonged popular engagement in resisting a colonial regime and that it can be seen as a politicalsymbol of national identity rather than merely a patchwork legal text.
