Overview:

This work lays bare the emergent political economy of corruption in India and the rather effected role of the judicial process and power in the resurrection of democratic values in public life.

Basing his premise on an analysis of the famous Antulay case, the author goes on to illustrate how anti-corruption laws in India tend to protect rather than punish the corrupt.

Regarding the Antulay case, as next only in importance to Kesavananda Bharti case, the work raises critical issues concerning the erosion of democracy in India and the fate of Indian Law and jurisprudence. It seeks to restore to political agenda, a lost cause : rectitude and integrity in the wielding of public power in India. The book highlights ways in which conscientious citizens should endeavour to redeem the future of Indian democracy by campaigns for law reform. The work explores both the jurisprudence of corruption and the corruption of jurisprudence.

"...my labour of writing and of your reading the book, should help the production of a new Indian destiny." Upendra Baxi

Reviews
  • Indian Law Institute : Baxi 's book is a good case study that throws much meaningful light on the working of the judicial system in India. It shows how a resourceful litigant can frustrate a litigation for corruption against him and how he benefits from the overpluralistic nature of the court processes. It also tells you how and why litigation gets bogged down in technicalities.
  • Academy Law Review : The work by the esteemed author is juristic and also thought provoking. The index provided at the end facilitates easy reference. The prime concern of the author regarding the eradication of corruption from high levels in the larger interest of the society is reflected throughout the work even though the discussions at various stages are very deep. The publishers deserve appreciation in getting the book printed in good form.
