"H.M. SEERVAI's new edition of Constitutional Law of India, is a massive undertaking......The importance of the subject matter more than justifies the care and the detail....Mr. Seervai offers trenchant criticism, of individual Judgements and individual Judges in a variety of cases...Such criticism, however, have to be seen in context. Mr. Seervai is anxious to delve deeply into constitutional issues, and inevitably he has strong and committed views to expound or defend. These views give the work a special vitality, and there are illuminating discussions of numberous topiec in the course of Volume I... His approach throughout is thoughtful and humane, and he is determined that India's own brand of constitutionalism should, with all its faults and failings, stand the test of time. He has managed to write a commentary which must be of great importance, professionally and academically, in India... The third and expanded edition of Vol. I is a work of recognised scholarship. We should be grateful for the manner in shich Mr. Seervai has wrestled with the constitutional quandaries of a great democracy and for the optimistic tone he adopts." Prof. D.G.T. Williams in the Cambridge Law Journal March 1985.
