V. N. Shukla’s Constitution of India has proved itself, over eleven editions, to be the most authoritative and respected academic book on Indian Constitution. Its outstanding reputation has established it in the foremost rank of classic legal textbooks.
"Professor Singh is to be congratulated in maintaining the impetus of research and revision necessary for successive editions of a book which is extremely useful for the purposes of reference and teaching."
- Cambridge Law Journal, U.K.
"I have already found it useful for references to authorities on particular articles."
- International and Comparative Law Quarterly, U.K.
"Precise and yet lucid accounts of the rationale in scores of leading decisions of the Supreme Court of India is the chief strength of this text."
- Malayan Law Review, Singapore
"It is a lawyer's book as well. The scholars of multi-disciplines may be tempted to have it in view of its lucid style and valuable and detailed information. The present reviewer has no hesitation in saying that today the book has attained the status of one of the leading commentaries on the Constitution of India.''
- Journal of the Indian Law Institute
"Considered opinions of academic men standing aloof from political ideologies or emotions given in a purely detached spirit on these and other questions are bound to carry respect and weight. Dr. Shukla, as a scholar and Professor of Law has the necessary credentials. Justice Kidwai in his Foreword has observed that in view of the fact that the life, liberty and property of every citizen of India is vitally affected by the provisions of the Constitution it is necessary that every effort should be made to make the provisions easily comprehensible and that Mr. Shukla's book has fulfilled the need admirably."
