This book offers an innovative approach to studying ‘judicial activism’ in the Indian context in tracing its history and relevance since 1773. While discussing the varying roles of the judiciary, it delineates the boundaries of different organs of the State — judiciary, executive and legislature — and highlights the points where these boundaries have been breached, especially through judicial interventions in parliamentary affairs and their role in governance and policy. Including a fascinating range of sources such as legal cases, books, newspapers, periodicals, lectures, historical texts and records, the author presents the complex sides of the arguments persuasively, and contributes to new ways of understanding the functioning of the judiciary in India. This paperback edition, with a new Afterword, updates the debates around the raging questions facing the Indian judiciary. It will be of great interest to students and scholars of law, political science and history, as well as legal practitioners and the general reader.

“Every person has a passion for something or the other. I took up the passion for reading from the age of twenty, which led me to build my own collection of books and reading material. It took me almost forty years to make this dream come true. Today, I own a personal library of almost 4,500 books. I never read a book unless I have a pencil in hand to note down or mark important passages which I think would make a valuable message for society. Continuing to do so, I have a unique collection of snippets which I thought to compile into a book. It is handy, knowledgeable, and interesting for all those who love books.” — Praveen Maben.
