Description
In the book under review which is an updated version, the author has done great service to lawyers, judges and the public by dealing with the subject of contempt of court with great competence, exhaustiveness and erudition. Quite a number of books are coming out these days on the subject of contempt of court, but one may state with confidence that the author of the book under review has done an excellent work and contributed to the study of the subject through a handy volume, shedding abundant light even on penumbral areas. There is hardly any facer of the topic he has omitted. Basically, he has presented a thorough study of the contempt of a Courts Act, 1971, in its various dimensions. The book is luminous without being voluminous, learned without being legalistic.
