The Transformative Constitution
A Radical Biography in Nine Acts
By - Gautam Bhatia

About the Book
The Transformative Constitution by Gautam Bhatia draws on pre-Independence legal and political history to argue that the Constitution was intended to transform not merely the political status of Indians from subjects to citizens, but also the social relationships on which legal and political structures rested.
Updated with a new Preface to the paperback edition, it advances a novel vision of the Constitution, and of constitutional interpretation, which is faithful to its text, structure and history, and above all to its overarching commitment to political and social transformation.
