This book is aimed at analysing the role of constitutional law within a political framework, with a special emphasis on the Indian constitutional law. Constitutional laws may be regarded as rulemaking of the second order, or rules which regulate the rules of exercising power within any political and legal set-up. It also governs and defines the interrelationships of the judiciary, the legislative and executive, these bodies, being subservient to the authority of the constitutional law. One of the primary tasks of constitutions within in this context is to indicate the hierarchies and relationships among bodies wielding power. For e.g., in a unitary state, the constitution will vest ultimate authority in central administration and legislature and judiciary, although there is often a delegation of power to local authorities. The book analyses this role of constitutional laws in defining power, exploring the types of constitutions their functions (both human right and legislative), and embarks on a detailed assessment of constitutions, taking into account some regions as case studies.
