The learned author has made an indepth study of the subject, from its common law origins to a comparison with the concept as available in other leading countries of the world. The concept as interpreted in UK, US, South Africa, France and Germany etc has been analysed. The procedure and scope of judicial review differs from country to country and State to State, and the author has brought this out very well in this study.
The work is divided into 9 parts and covers :- the common-law origin of judicial review in the UK and the US. models and theories of judicial review. the organisation and independence of judiciary in different countries of the world. judicial review in the UK, US and some other countries of the world. judicial review of administrative actions in India. judicial review of legislation in India. limits of judicial review. impact analysis of judicial review. the changing dimensions of judicial creativity and shifting legitimacy.
Associated with the concept of justice, which has engaged us from time immemorial, are the instrumentalities of "Judicial Power and Judicial Review", the title of this encyclopedic work produced by a known scholar of public law. Whatever may have been the position in earlier times, in modern times for well over two centuries the subject-matter of this book has been constantly growing into an intensely and widely discussed and debated issue in legal and political theory and practice.
