The present book argues that the constitution of a country is as much a political document as a legal one and hence its success or otherwise is also dependent on how it is interpreted and implemented politically. A work written from the perspective of a political scientist, it integrally underlines the ' expectation of permanence' on which a constitution is based and in its analysis lays as much emphasis on the 'making' of the invaluable document called Constitution of India as on its 'working'. A very significant and handy analytical study, it is a useful companion to both the general reader and to the students of political science.
