This is a fresh approach on the subject by a scholar of long standing. The author is fully aware of the role that the principles of equity play in adapting legal principles to changing conditions in society and it is in this background that he has explained the various principles of equity. Not only this, he also appreciates that the principles of equity must themselves undergo change, and has given his suggestions wherever pertinent. He has, as he quotes in the preface, dealt with "the effect and operation of legal rules, with their aims and reason, (rather) than with mechanistic problem of internal consistency of decisions within the framework of any given system".
Every aspect of the subject has been explained most lucidly and in-depth. Several important points that have escaped discussion in other books have been considered and discussed by the author with reference to the prevailing situation in Indian Society. The book attempts to fulfil the need for an authoritative work on the subject.
The book is divided into four parts and twenty-five chapters, each chapter having its own synopsis. Part I deals with the nature of Equity, its history, courts and important maxims in action, Part II with specific equities, equitable doctrines and equitable rights - the area wherein these principles were introduced and tested, Part III with principles of trusts with special reference to Indian Trusts Act, 1882 and Part IV with principles of specific performance and other equitable remedies with special reference to the Specific Relief Act, 1963 in India. An elaborate subject-index and table of cases add to the utility of the book.
