The Indian Constitution and Social Revolution free pdf This book highlights the evolution of India's Constitution into a tool for social revolution, tracing the various stages through which the law on the Right to Property and its relationship with the idea of socialism-as laid out in Parts III and IV of the Constitution-have evolved. It underlines that the road to social revolution has been marked by a process where attempts to give effect to the idea of justice-social, economic, and political-as laid down in the Preamble have achieved a measure of success. If the Constitution, including the Preamble, is to be viewed as a contract that the people of India had entered into with the political leadership of the times and the judiciary being the arbitrator to ensure justice, it may be held that the scheme has worked. This book traces this history by placing the judicial and legislative measures in the larger context of the political discourse.
