About the Author:

Granville Austin is a retired historian.

Review:


"The author has done for the Indian constitution what C.A. Beard and other scholars have done for the constitution of the United States. The author's reading has been vast and he has undertaken much research in unpublished material....There is something majestic in the scale of the work that is appropriate to the subject-matter."--The Economist
"A pioneer work....This is the most readable, and probably the most thorough, account of the framing of the Indian Constitution that has been published. It gives due attention to leading personalities and to historical background as well as to the central theme of the study. It is, in short, political history at its best." --Journal of Asian Studies
