Bringing together two well-received collections of essays, this volume is thematically organized across sections on the president, parliament, states, judiciary, elections, commissions of enquiry, the civil service, the right to information, armed forces and the political process in India. Constitutional Questions covers the politically tumultuous years between 1989 and 1999 and scrutinizes almost every constitutional problem that arose then. The essays deal with issues concerning the president, parliament, and the states and show that though none of these institutions have worked satisfactorily, the panacea is not a radical overhaul of the constitution but a thorough transformation of the political culture of the country. The introduction surveys events since 1950, when the constitution came into being. Citizens' Rights deals with crisis in various institutions including the judiciary, the civil services, and elections. It highlights the process of accountability in these in stitutions, the citizens' rights to know, the working of the commissions of enquiry, the political process, article 370 and the armed forces. It shows how citizens can assert their rights and bring to account those who yield power. Each essay has copious quotations and citations with full references.
