Krishna Iyer contains lectures delivered by the learned author to commemorate the memory of Swamy Ramanand Teerth, the great freedom fighter who always revolted against injustice. Democratic Legality, in its processional egalite is the focus of these lectures
The learned author in his lectures has focused on forensic realism and its short-fall vis-à-vis social justice. He is a firm believer of the fact that the ultimate user of justice is the common man, in millions and not the millionaires. His lectures, based on opinions of eminent scholars, judges, jurists, writers, leaders and enriched by his own original thinking and critical analysis cover a vast canvas of the judicial process, its shortcomings and also ways of reformation.
Justice Krishna Iyer, forcefully advocates a thorough overhaul of the legal system, which as he says, inflicts unlimited injustices upon the numerous voiceless illiterate masses of India. He emphasises greatly on the commitment of the judges to the concept of social and equal justice embedded in the preamble, Fundamental Rights and Directive Principles of the Constitution of India.
This substantial prolific and forceful work can be counted of as classical masterpiece of jurisprudential literature. The book will be immensely useful to legal scholars, jurists, administrators, students of judicial process, law reformers politicians, judges and a must in every library.

All India Reporter “These lectures contain a mine of knowledge and would provide guidelines to the judges and lawyers and the legislators, for the improvement of the machinery for the dispensation of justice to the poor Indian masses.”
Review Projector (India) “The author rightly claims that his lectures endeavour to identify the iron curtain between justicidal judicialism and the justice hungering quest of the submerged masses. In fact the book breaks many an iron curtain, throws a flood of light into the malaise of our justicing system and opens a new path for redesigning dispute-resolving strategies.”
