Durga Das Basu’s Commentary on the Constitution of India, 8th edn. 2011, Vol. 9 (HB)
The commentary was first published within nine months of the commencement of the Constitution in 1950. A pioneering work on the Indian Constitution, the series is not merely a digest of cases. It is the first authoritative work on the Constitution of India that adopted an interdisciplinary approach, examining this great document from the philosophical, sociological, political as well as legal perspectives. D D Basu’s Commentary on the Constitution of India is the first Indian work on the 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.
