Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195694155, Hardcover)Selected Works of S.P. Sathe offers a hand-picked selection of articles from the vast corpus of Professor Sathe's works, published in Indian and international law journals and books over a period of five decades. This three-volume compendium carries the legacy of this eminent jurist and widely cited Indian legal scholar to present and future generations, and will be a cornerstone of inspiration for lawyers and legal scholars for years to come. The first volume, Constitutionalism, focuses on the Indian Constitution. The essays in this volume are arranged in four thematic sections and discuss the vistas of the Indian Constitution, its provisions with regard to the right to property, the 'basic structure' principle, and human rights in the Indian context. The articles critically examine vital aspects of the Constitution ranging from an analysis of its role in constructing social justice to an exploration of the difference between Constitution and Constitutionalism. Also covered are the process of legitimation of the Indian Constitution, and the journey of the Indian judiciary from positivism to structuralism in interpreting the provisions of the Constitution. The second volume, Judicial Power and Processes, focuses on the development of public law and the judicial process in India. The essays in this volume encompass six thematic sections-federalism and centre-state relations; judicial processes; fundamental rights and the judicial process; judicial review; freedom of the press, defamation, and contempt of court; and glimpses of administrative law. The articles astutely analyse the legitimacy of the judicial process and public participation in the same, as well as redefine assumptions about judicial power and its processes. The third volume, Social Justice and Legal Transformation, focuses on mechanisms for safeguarding social justice in constitutionally secular India. The essays in this work are categorized into ten thematic sections that discuss India as a secular country; the Right to Information; gender, law, and justice; and reservations. The articles also include profiles of legal luminaries and analyses of the legal profession and social change; activist lawyering; legal aid; legal education and research; and police, prison issues, and criminal justice. The wide range of articles in this volume provides profound stimulus to the discourse on public law and social justice.
